This day with God will be amazing because we have a fresh start and optimistically look forward to a better day than yesterday. We have chosen to accept the unquenchable love of God, His amazing grace, and unlimited power. Reading in Hebrews 7:1-10 we will gather facts about Melchizedek who is an excellent representation of Christ. These facts affect us today because we are able to better understand God’s Plan for Us. We can live out the good life today and look forward to our tomorrows.
Melchizedek was king of Salem which means “king of peace” and Salem became the Jerusalem of Today. The name Melchizedek means “king of righteousness”. He blessed Abraham after returning from victory in a war and Abraham gave him a 10th of everything.
Melchizedek is an excellent representation of Christ as he is described as Priest of God Most High. Like the incarnate Christ who is described as Son of God and continual High Priest, there is mystery behind the life of Melchizedek as there was no genealogy recorded of his father. Like Christ who has blessed us with victory, Melchizedek blessed Abraham with victory. Melchizedek had no descendants to take his position and similar to Christ is described as continual priest.
These facts and truths affect us because we are better able to understand God’s ultimate plan given to us in the Old Testament and coming to fruition in the New Testament. For this reason, we can live out the good life today and look forward to even better ones to come.
Lord, this day we have accepted the Son. We are better than brand new because we have received Your unquenchable love, Your amazing grace, and today will be confident because of Your unlimited power at work in us. We are looking forward to each day to getting better and better as we grow in grace. We look forward to living in paradise forever.
