MESSIAH

Read: Psalm 110

Key Verse: “The Lord has sworn and will not change His mind: ‘You are a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek.’” - Psalm 110:4

How often do you try to multi-task? How many hats are you wearing during the day? Can you shift from friend to leader to parent to employee quickly? Jesus has many roles, and this psalm gives us some insight into His greatness. Kings oversee the affairs of a nation. Priests lead the country spiritually. Their roles were clear.

There were priestly functions given to Aaron’s lineage that the king was not allowed to lead. Melchizedek, however, is a priest-king of God at Jerusalem. He has a higher role that the Aaronic priesthood. Jesus serves as prophet, priest and king. Melchizedek had two roles for a short time, but Jesus reigns forever. The Messiah holds these offices and His position is permanent and irrevocable.

Take time today to think about everything Jesus leads, sustains, and oversees!
