This Sunday we dove deeper into Hebrews and looked to Christ, our great High Priest!  We began the service with Psalm 48 and two songs that Christ Baptist has loved to express our praise and gratitude to Christ in salvation; those two songs being: “At The Cross” and “What A Savior“.  The first is a great look at the doctrine of salvation holistically and the second follows suit and takes the old hymn “Hallelujah What A Savior (Man of Sorrows)” and takes a new twist on it.  Jonathan Brooks read from Psalm 110 as we prepared to examine Melchizedek in Hebrews 7.  We then sang two more favorite songs “Psalm 62” and “Before The Throne“.  Thankful that Jesus is “a great High Priest whose name is love, who ever lives and pleads for me” Jonathan opened up Hebrews chapter 7 and started Part 1 of a 2 part series on this chapter.  We are sinners and we must see that we have a foundational and urgent problem, sin, and are in need of a high priest who has passed before us into the inner courts and ever pleads to the Father on our behalf.  We praise God there has been a change in the priesthood, from one who could never achieve perfection to the One who is perfect righteousness!  We ended our service mindful that as Israel looked ahead toward the Messiah and sang “O Come, O Come Emmanuel“, shall ransom captive Israel; we can now sing He HAS ransomed captive Israel “from depths of hell thy people save, and give them victory o’er the grave!”
