- “The Lord has sworn an oath and will not take it back: ‘You are a priest forever according to the pattern of Melchizedek’” (Psalm 110:4). CS Spurgeon has this to say, “It is done – and done forever and ever. Jesus is sworn in to be the priest of his people, and he must abide so even to the end because his commission is sealed by the unchanging oath of the immutable Jehovah. If his priesthood could be revoked and his authority removed, it would be the end of all hope and life for the people he loves; but this sure rock is the basis of our security. The oath of God establishes our glorious Lord both in his priesthood and in his throne. The Lord has constituted him a priest forever. He has done it by oath. That oath is without repentance, is taking effect now, and will stand throughout all ages. Hence our security in him is placed beyond all question.” Give some thought on this and return to God in praise and thanks for this incredible reality.
- We kick off the year tonight with students! It’s always a night full of energy and excitement to be back with friends, having fun and tuning in to God. Pray that many students come and commit to being a part of God’s story in their lives.
- Pray for Andy and Barb as they seek to make disciples in nations closed to Christianity.*
