When You Are Needing Peace

If you are looking for some peace, think about what you know of Salvation through Christ and read this verse…Hebrews 7:25

Then, think of the Levitical priests and their daily sacrifices knowing that it was a foreshadow of things to come. The priests were presenting a picture of what Christ would do for us.

Read Hebrews 7:23-28…Jesus did this for you and me. We do not need to be perfect, there is no score to keep.

If you want permanent peace, tell Jesus you know you can’t be perfect, that you are a sinner, and you want and need His sacrifice on the cross to be for you. Ask Him to give you faith.

If you did, then know that you are His and He is interceding for you.

Spend as much time as you can in the Bible…

Hebrews 7:25 – Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them.
