Now, today’s post:

Are you familiar with the legal term “double jeopardy”? It means that a person can’t be tried for the same crime two times. In God’s system, it means the same, which is an incredible blessing. Jesus was tried for all the sins we’ve committed and will commit. God has promised to not try us for our sins that Jesus has already been convicted of and paid the debt. And as if that weren’t enough of a huge eternal blessing, there’s more. Hebrews 2:17 explains that after Jesus died for our sins, He entered into God’s presence and became our High Priest. The resurrected Christ is seated at God’s right hand. What is He doing?  Praying for us. Go to Him in gratitude. Live for Him in joy.

Lord Jesus, we praise You, our Lord, and high PRIEST!  Thank You for taking our place at the judgment seat and dying for our sins.  How can we serve You?

“Therefore, He (Jesus) had to be made like His brethren in all things, so that He might become a merciful and faithful high PRIEST in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.”  Hebrews 2:17

Have you heard of the legal term “double jeopardy”? In our legal system it means that a person can’t be tried for the same crime two times. In God’s system, it means the same; which is an incredible blessing. Jesus was tried for all the sins we’ve ever committed and will commit. God has promised to not try us for our sins that Jesus has already been convicted of and paid the debt. As if that’s not enough of a huge eternal blessing and relief, there’s more! Hebrews 2:17 explains that after Jesus took our place and died for our sins, He assumed the role of High Priest and entered into God’s presence to offer His blood as the sacrifice for our sin. Jesus demonstrated the greatest of mercy when He took our place at the judgement seat and was convicted for our crimes. We can’t be tried again for our sins because Jesus was tried for them, found guilty, and sentenced to death. Resurrected, He sits as God’s right hand praying for us. Run to Him in gratitude. Live for Him in joy.

Lord Jesus, we praise You, our Lord and high PRIEST!  Thank You for taking our place at the judgement seat and dying for our sins.  How can we serve You?

In God’s system, it means the same; which is an incredible blessing. Jesus was tried for all the sins we’ve ever committed and will commit. God has promised to not try us for sins Jesus has already been convicted of and paid for when we repent of them and confess Jesus as Lord. There’s more. Hebrews 2:17 explains that after Jesus took our place and died for our sins, He then assumed the role of High Priest and entered into God’s presence to offer His blood as the sacrifice for our sin.

Praise to Our PRIEST

09/03/2017

“Therefore, He (Jesus) had to be made like His brethren in all things, so that He might become a merciful and faithful high PRIEST in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.”

Have you ever longed for a way to be exonerated and released from your sin; rather than it weigh you down as if you were carrying a corpse of guilt on your back? If so, please recognize that Jesus is more than our friend. He is our high PRIEST. That means that when He died, He entered the holiest of holies – God’s presence  – and offered the sacrifice of His blood to atone for and cover our sins. There is no need for us to carry our guilt. Jesus, our high priest carried it to the cross and died on our behalf. We are no longer shackled with sin and guilt. Run free to Christ and ask how you might serve Him!

Lord Jesus, we praise You, our Lord and high PRIEST!  Thank You for absolving us of our sin and removing the guilt of our sin. How can we serve You?

PRIEST

“Therefore, He (Jesus) had to be made like His brethren in all things, so that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.” 

   Hebrews 2:17

Have you ever longed for a way to be exonerated and released from your sin; rather than it weighing you down as if you were carrying a corpse of guilt on your back? If so, please recognize that Jesus is more than your friend. He is your high priest. That means that upon His death He entered the holiest of holies – God’s presence and offered the sacrifice of His blood to atone for and cover your sins. There is no need for or point in you carrying guilt. Your high priest has completed His work on your behalf. You are free.   

Lord Jesus, I praise You, my Lord and high PRIEST! Thank You for absolving me of my sin and the weight of the guilt of my sin. I love You and praise You!
