Jesus Our High Priest

I've been pondering about the thought of Jesus being our High Priest, like it discusses in Hebrews 7.
Rather fascinating the way it all came about and what goes on....

Firstly in Hebrews 7:12 is says "For when there is a change of priesthood, there must also be a change of the law."
The rule of thumb stated by the law was that all priests had to come from the line of Aaron....
however Jesus came from the line of Judah. Therefore Jesus became a priest "not on the basis of a regulation as to his ancestry but on the basis of the Power of an indestructible life (vs16). ......"The former regulation is set aside because it was weak and useless (For the law made nothing perfect) and a better hope is introduced, by which we draw near to God (18,19). He changed everything!!!

How he came was not religiously, he made a way that was unconventional! A way to freedom! He also crushed the need for day to day animal sacrificing that the priests did by sacrificing his own life, once and for all. Paying our debt, where he stands in the gap as he petitions his father on our behalf. How amazing Jesus is.....he's the ultimate Box Breaker.

Don't be bound by rules and region but find Christ in a personal way and see the boxes in your life that he want's to break you out of!
Just a thought.....Jesus is our High Priest.....and there will be no other!
