Hebrews 6:13-7:28

Hebrews 6:19 - I love this verse. God's promise is an anchor for our soul. And where does it anchor us? The inner place, behind the curtain, where God was in the temple. One end is tied to our soul, the other end, with the anchor, is with God. The hope, God's promise to us, ties us together. How cool is that?

Not only that, but Hebrews 6:20 says it is where Jesus has gone - into God's office if you will - on our behalf. It's as if Jesus ties this rope to our very soul, tied the other end to the anchor, and took it too God's office and left it there so we would never be lost, no matter how bad the storms get.

Hebrews 7:15 - I love the logic of Hebrews, how the writer uses Melchizedek to prove that Jesus is a priest of a different order, not by heritage, but "by the power of an indestructible life." He was a priest because of who he was, meaning how he lived and what he did, his character. Amazing.

Hebrews 7:25-27 - "he is able to save to the uttermost" To the uttermost. The old priests couldn't do that. They could "save" from one day to the next, but it did not last. The sacrifices had to be made, and salvation obtained, again and again. But Jesus "did this once for all when he offered up himself."
