Happy Monday! “This Melchizedek was king of the city of Salem and also a priest of God Most High. When Abraham was returning home after winning a great battle against the kings, Melchizedek met him and blessed him. Then Abraham took a tenth of all he had captured in battle and gave it to Melchizedek. The name Melchizedek means “king of justice,” and king of Salem means “king of peace.” There is no record of his father or mother or any of his ancestors—no beginning or end to his life. He remains a priest forever, resembling the Son of God.” Hebrews 7:1-3 NLT.
This introduction of Melchizedek teaches us about a priest who was highly honored among the people. While he was a priest of God Most High we will learn in Chapter 7, he resembled the Son of God – Jesus Christ, however he was not equal to or greater than.
Thank you for another Monday. Father as we seek to serve you, help us to remember to resemble your love and peace. Strengthen us Lord and help us to be all that you have called us to be. Help us to stand with our brothers and sisters in the faith who are struggling with the things of this world. Help us to see you for who and how great you are. Help us to praise you for all the great things you have done and continue to do. While things may press us on both sides, Lord when we are pressed may evidence of you in our life pour out so others will see you in us. Cover us with your protection, give us wisdom to understand your word and an obedient heart to follow you. In Jesus name, Amen!
Keep seeking! Keep trusting! Keep praying!
Have a wonderful Monday! He is faithful.
