Hebrews 7:25-26

Here’s Something for Which to be Grateful

11/28/2019

Happy Thanksgiving!

Recently, someone said to me, “The only good I have is because I’m a Christian.” What did the person mean? They were acknowledging that Christ is the “goodness” in them. Christ is more than “good,” however. He is what Hebrews 7:26 defines as undefiled. Whereas our human nature is defiled, Christ is the opposite. He is “holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners and exalted about the heavens.”  Christ is a fitting high priest who saves us not because of who we are, but because of who He is. We have a holy, innocent, UNDEFILED Savior to whom we can look with gratitude. 

Thank you, Lord Jesus, for loving us and saving us! We are grateful for You and love you.

Here’s Something for Which to be Grateful

LISTEN

Recently, someone said to me, “The only good I have is because I’m a Christian.” What did the person mean? They were acknowledging that Christ is the “goodness” in them. Christ is more than “good,” however, as we understand goodness. He is what Hebrews 7:26 defines as undefiled. Whereas, our human nature is defiled, Christ is the opposite. He is “holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners and exalted about the heavens.”  Christ is a fitting high priest who is able to save us not because of who we are, but because of who He is. Our stubborn sinfulness doesn’t throw Him. Our willful rebellion doesn’t cripple His saving power. We have a holy, innocent, UNDEFILED Savior to whom we can look with gratitude.

“For it was fitting for us to have such a high priest, holy, innocent, UNDEFILED, separated from sinners and exalted above the heavens;”  Hebrews 7:26.

Thank you, Lord Jesus, for loving us and saving us! We love you.

Praise to the UNDEFILED Christ

“For it was fitting for us to have such a high priest, holy, innocent, UNDEFILED, separated from sinners and exalted above the heavens;”

Hebrews 7:26

This is one of my favorite of Christ’s attributes. Why? For the reason it gives. Christ is able to save us not because of who we are, but because of who He is. Our stubborn sinfulness doesn’t throw Him. Our sin doesn’t cripple His saving power. We have an innocent UNDEFILED Savior who has gained our salvation on the basis of His righteousness. I’ll take that any day of the year. How about you? With a grateful heart to our Lord, I’m singing His praises.

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus – there’s something about that name. Holy, innocent, UNDEFILED, able to make intercession for us. We love and praise You!

UNDEFILED

“Therefore He is able also to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them. For it was fitting for us to have such a high priest, holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners and exalted above the heavens;” 

Hebrews 7:25-26

This is one of my favorite attributes. Why? For the reason it gives. Christ is able to save me not because of who I am, but because of who He is. My stubborn sinfulness doesn’t throw Him. My sin doesn’t cripple His saving power. I have an innocent undefiled Savior who is able to soar to heaven and plead my salvation in God’s presence. I’ll take that any day of the year. How about you? With a grateful heart to my Lord, I’m singing His praises. 

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus – there’s something about that name. Holy, innocent, UNDEFILED, able to make intercession for me. I love and praise You!
