Day 306

PERMANENT PRIEST

But because Jesus lives forever,

he has a permanent priesthood.

Hebrews 7:24

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, My high priests served their purpose well. I commissioned each one to offer sacrifices for My people of old, to be the intercessor between God and man. But they are gone, and the sacrifices have died with them. Know that I am your high priest forever. I have a permanent priesthood that offers complete salvation, unconditional love, and total forgiveness. I offered Myself as the ultimate, perfect sacrifice for you. I initiated the New Covenant—and you accepted. I'm so glad you did.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
Just like passing shadows, Your priests have come and gone. But You, Lord, are the permanent priest. Because You intercede for me, I can proceed to God. Because of You, the Father hears my name often and welcomes me to His throne.

SIMPLE TRUTH

When you call on God, there's no long distance charge.
