MFM Daily Devotional 28 December 2021 | Mountain Top Life | Outline
Jesus means so many things to us: our Saviour, Healer and High Priest. A priest is a mediator between man and God. Before the fall, God and man had closed fellowship with each other. Man was sinless and pure. But when Adam ate of the forbidden fruit, there comes a wall of separation between God and man.
Out of His love for mankind, God initiated a way for reconnection. God established priesthood. For a temporary fix, Moses ordained Aaron and his sons as priest. God’s permanent fix was his Son. Jesus, by His crucifixion, death and resurrection has become our High Priest. He bridges the gap between God and fallen man. He is better qualified than the old high priest.
In the Old Testament, human high priests made atonement for the sins of people once in a year. Jesus, our great High Priest, with one sacrifice, made you and me perfect forever. He can be touched with the feeling of our infirmities. He understands our weakness. He knows what it feels to be hungry, to be thirsty, to be joyful, to be sorrowful, to be sad, to be angry, and to be betrayed by a friend.
Similarly, human high priests would offer a sacrifice for his own sin before he could make atonement for the sins of people. Jesus is worthy because He is sinless (Hebrew 7:26-27). Jesus is constantly in the presence of God. He made one sacrifice and it covered all sins (Hebrew 10:12). What a consolation to know that you have access to God because all sins which separated you are removed. You don’t need another individual to go into God’s presence for you.
Now we all have free and daily access to God by the blood of Jesus (Hebrew 10:19-23; Ephesian 2:18). Beloved, this invitation is open to all men: come boldly before his throne at any time, provided you have identified yourself with Him, and receive the gift of forgiveness that was paid for with His precious blood.
Jesus, the great high priest, knows all about your struggle.
As the Lord lives, your cry will attract the attention of heaven today, in the name of Jesus.
HYMN: Jesus only is our Message
- Jesus only is our Message,
Jesus all our theme shall be,
We will lift up Jesus ever,
Jesus only will we see.
Jesus only, Jesus ever,
Jesus all in all we sing:
Saviour, Sanctifier, Healer,
Glorious Lord and coming King.
- Jesus only is our Saviour,
All our guilt He bore away,
All our righteousness He gives us,
All our strength from day to day.
Jesus is our Sanctifier,
Cleansing us from self and sin,
And with all His Spirit’s fulness,
Filing all our hearts within.
Jesus only is our Healer,
All our sicknesses He bare,
And His risen life and fulness,
All His members still may share.
Jesus only is our Power,
His the gift of Pentecost;
Jesus, breathe Thy power upon us,
Fill us with the Holy Ghost.
1. Lord Jesus, thank You for coming to the world to experience my temptation and sorrows.

3. Let the blood of Jesus speak perfection into my life, in the name of Jesus.
4. Father, I am grateful because You have reconciled me to Yourself through Jesus, in the name of Jesus.
5. Jesus has made once and for all sacrifice for me; any power carrying sacrifices for my sake, perish by fire, in the name of Jesus.
