A Better Hope

aajesusIn Hebrews 7 Scripture tells the Hebrew Christians that the new covenant and the new high priest is superior to the old. In verse 19 it says, for the law made nothing perfect, and a better hope is introduced, by which we draw near to God. Jesus is a perfect high priest. He was tempted in every point like we are yet was without sin. Because Christ is now our high priest and has shed His blood we are able to draw near to God. This means we have the ability to enter into relationship with God. Hebrews 10:22 says, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith. A purpose of Scripture is to allow us knowledge necessary to draw near to God. What law keeping could never do Christ as our high priest allows. The new covenant brought to us by the blood of Christ is a better hope. As Christians we are adopted into the family of God. What stronger relationship or better hope than that!

    Christ’s blood went back to cover the sins of the people under the old law and takes our sins away today—-what a glorious thing grace is! Christ is our hope yesterday, today and tomorrow!
