We have many things to be thankful for, living when we do. One of those is that we live in the era when the Law of Moses is no longer the arrangement between God and His people. Today we see in Hebrews that the High Priesthood of Jesus means that He is a Priest belonging to a higher, better Law than the Law of Moses.
We begin with Psalm 40, where David foresees Messiah going above and beyond sacrifice and offering, and doing God’s will. We then turn to sing to Father, Son and Spirit in a prayer and hymn of invocation.
Galatians 2:20-3:14 challenges us as to whether we are living under the Law of Moses, or the Law of Christ. If we are living under Christ, then we can sing “All I Have Is Christ”. Our reading in Jeremiah prophesies that the Mosaic Covenant would be replaced by the New Covenant.
After our pastoral prayer, we take our offering while singing our hymn of the month: “A Good High Priest Is Come”.
We close with the Doxology and a blessing on God’s people.
