Jesus Came as the Priest of God

shapeimage_1This second week of advent, we looked at Christ, as the Priest sent by God. These are some of the lines that have rattled around my mind in preparing for the message. I hope it is an encouragement to you.

CHRIST, MY VOICE TO GOD

An impenetrable fortress, walls, laws, righteousness
The curtain, muffling every cry
My God inside, waiting, listening,
I sit outside, hoping without hope

Inside, separated, distant, even God cannot hear
Help, a hand, no, a voice
Speak, speak for me, be my voice
Break in and speak

Arriving with bloody sweat
Thorn crowned and nailed to the beam
He enters, he speaks, he dies
The sacrifice enough, complete forever

A curtain torn, sitting at Mercy’s seat
Whispering to the Holy One
I have a voice God hears
He is my voice, my Priest, Jesus

If you would like to listen to the sermon, you can do so here.

What does it mean to you for Christ to be your priest?
