“The Lord has sworn
and will not change his mind,
‘You are a priest forever.’”
This makes Jesus the guarantor of a better covenant. The former priests were many in number, because they were prevented by death from continuing in office, but he holds his priesthood permanently, because he continues forever. Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them. (Hebrews 7:21-25)
Just a quick thank you this morning, God. Thank you that you are able to save me fully, completely, for all time, perfectly — to the uttermost — as I draw near to you through Jesus. I do draw near with gratitude. Keep me drawing near all the days of my life. Perfect my faith in you. Perfect me in you. For Jesus has brought me close to you and in you,
I am saved — to the uttermost!
