Priest

Melchizedek appears, 16 one who has become a priest not on the basis of a regulation as to his ancestry but on the basis of the power of an indestructible life.  (NIV)

 The tribe of Juda was not the tribe of the priest.  Priest were chosen out of the Levites.  The office of priest was through ancestry.  Jesus surpasses ancestry.  He is the High Priest based on His power and indestructible life.  Mankind tried to end the life of Jesus.  Jesus died but came back to life in order to take our sins to death and live eternally in the presence of God.  What a beautiful truth to be fulfilled for us.  Let us be sure to thank Him today for His sacrificial if for us.
