Scripture reading for February 24th: Leviticus 15-18, Psalm 31, Hebrews 6
Key Scriptures: Hebrews 6:17-20 “So when God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of His purpose, He guaranteed it with an oath, so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us. We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.”
God testified of Jesus “You are My Son,” and “You are a Priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.” (Hebrews 5:5-6) Believers can take refuge in God’s Word and truth. Jesus rose from the dead and entered God’s Presence in Heaven offering His own blood on our behalf as our High Priest. This gives us strong confidence and firm assurance!
Faith Confession and Prayer: Jesus, I trust in You and say “Jesus is my Lord!” Thank You for offering Your blood on my behalf on the Mercy Seat in heaven. Help me to proclaim Your Lordship!
Leviticus 16:15-16 “Then he shall kill the goat of the sin offering that is for the people and bring its blood inside the veil and do with its blood as he did with the blood of the bull, sprinkling it over the mercy seat and in front of the mercy seat. Thus he shall make atonement for the Holy Place, because of the uncleannesses of the people and because of their transgressions and all their sins.”
Psalm 31:14 “But I trust in You, O Lord; I say, “Your are my God.”
