Scripture

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What is the significance of a change in the priesthood from the Levites to Jesus (verses 12, 18)?

Application

Am I still trying to live under the old law and regulations, or am I fully experiencing the freedom Christ offers?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Lord Jesus, Thank You for establishing a new covenant and for being my high priest who remains forever. I thank You that I am no longer under the weight of the law, but I am made right with God through Your grace. Thank You, Lord Jesus! Amen!

Pray to BLESS!
One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
  • E – Emotions (emotional health as well as guarding against letting emotions rule)
  • S – Social (relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)

Spend some time praying for the following people and ministries:

  • Theresa Daniels
  • Travis & Hali Davidson (Andrew, Maddy)
  • Brandon & Lindsey Dockins
  • Patti Doty
  • Ken & Twilla Eden (Mattea, Joseph, Joshua, Sophia, Jonathan)

Missionaries:

  • Tim & Miranda Penn (Samid, Sarah), missionaries to Albania

CLF:

  • That Christian Life Fellowship would be a church that is devoted to the Word of God, and that we would be doers of it and not just hearers; that we would study the Word and so always be prepared to give everyone an answer–in season and out of season–and be approved workers who do not need to be ashamed, able to accurately understand and explain it.

Community: Pray for Caldwell

  • That city leaders would submit to God
  • That people can find and keep gainful employment
  • For sound financial management by city officials
  • Salvation for unbelievers
  • For the mayor, city council members, and public works officials

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
The Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment – 2 Peter 2:9 (HCSB)
