Scripture reading for February 26th: Leviticus 21-23, Hebrews 8
Key Scriptures: Hebrews 8:1-5 “Now the point in what we are saying is this: we have such a High Priest, One who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven, a Minister in the holy places, in the true tent that the Lord set up, not man. For every high priest is appointed to offer gifts and sacrifices; thus it is necessary for this priest also to have something to offer. Now if He were on earth, He would not be a priest at all, since there are priests who offer gifts according to the law. They serve a copy and shadow of the heavenly things.”
The law and priesthood of the old covenant were merely types and shadows of actual things in heaven. But God chose to send His only Son to become the ultimate and final High Priest of a different order and a New Covenant. Our Priest, Jesus, is seated at God’s right hand, having completed His work of sacrifice by offering His own blood on the actual Mercy Seat of heaven! His gift is beyond comparing!
Faith Confession and Prayer: I accept the finished work of Jesus Christ, the offering of His body and blood, to pay for the penalty of my sins. I am thankful He is alive and seated in heaven, praying for me! Help me as Your child to never profane Your Holy Name.
Leviticus 22:1-2 “And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to Aaron and his sons so that they abstain from the holy things of the people of Israel, which they dedicate to Me, so that they do not profane My Holy Name: I am the Lord.”
