As we draw near to Good Friday, we ask the question, “Why did Jesus die on the cross?” My answer? Because you are the most precious thing that God created. You are the beauty of life. These ideals, that God would give up His only Son to save countless sons and daughters annoys Satan! So he lurks, beware of the lie for it is happy to deceive. Satan deceives us by telling us that we are worthless, not smart enough, not good looking, not cool enough, that when we are hurt and feeling hopeless that no one understands. Do not be deceived! God has prepared another way, you can call on the name of Jesus anytime, anywhere! Please take note, you are loved. Can’t wait to celebrate with you on Easter Sunday!
“One who has become a priest not on the basis of a regulation as to his ancestry but on the basis of the power of an indestructible life.” The context of Hebrews 7:16 is all about Jesus being the ultimate High Priest. Jesus fulfilled prophesy and had all the ancestry he needed to be savior of the world but he also demonstrated who he was. God used this phrase, “indestructible life,” to remind me of the cross the ultimate sacrifice for my sin where Jesus died but three days later was resurrected from the dead. Because of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection His followers can also have an indestructible life. When we believe and have faith in Jesus we have eternal life but we also have the inner strength and power of the Holy Spirit to help us overcome the troubles and difficulties. Do you have the indestructible life that comes from knowing and following Jesus?
