JESUS IS OUR HIGH PRIEST
AND THE ANCHOR FOR OUR SOUL
We continued our study of Hebrews and found that before Jesus came, the High Priest would make sacrifices to God. Usually it was a lamb. But Jesus became that lamb and sacrificed himself on the cross for us. Because of that, he is our new High Priest.
After so much rain last week, Hebrews 6:7 was very appropriate. "For land that has drunk the rain that often falls on it, and produces a crop useful to those for whose sake it is cultivated, receives a blessing from God." We took home seed packets to remind us that as we grow in our faith, we also will produce great works for Jesus.
Hebrews 6:19 tells us that "We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, here Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek." We made anchors to remind us of this wonderful promise.
