"Our High Priest" - 09/03/17 - Ezra 1-2
"They had thoroughly searched for their family records but couldn’t find them. And so they were barred from priestly work as ritually unclean. The governor ruled that they could not eat from the holy food until a priest could determine their status with the Urim and Thummim." (2:62-63)
So often we wander around trying to find our purpose in life.
We needn't live that way.
Because of our Savior, we are made completely clean through the gift of His Blood. The Ultimate Sacrifice.
When in Him, our ABBA sees us as pure and Holy.
No longer are we barred from the priestly work He has commissioned us to do while journeying towards Home on this earth. We have been given access to eat from the Holy Food. His Word. To partake of the Holy Communion in remembrance of The Sacrifice of His only begotten Son. We have been left with The Holy Spirit who lives in and around us.
All of us have been left with The Great Commission:
"Jesus, undeterred, went right ahead and gave His charge: “God authorized and commanded Me to commission you: Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you.
I’ll be with you as you do this, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age.”
We all have a purpose. His purpose.
