Devotion for Thursday after the Third Sunday in Advent

 The Lord has sworn
     and will not change his mind,
 “You are a priest forever
     after the order of Melchizedek.” 
 ~ Psalm 110:4 

Abraham worshipped and tithed to Melchizedek, who served Abraham bread and wine. Melchizedek was not in the order of Aaron so was not eligible to be a priest under the law. Yet he was known as the King of Salem (thought to be Jerusalem) and priest of the most high God. Likewise, Jesus is both priest and king, and God has promised He will be both forever.

God Most High, I worship and serve Jesus as both priest and king and know He will be both forever. In His name I pray. Amen.

Note: These devotions are also available in print and e-reader formats.

All author proceeds from the devotionals will be donated to Love for the Least. The mission of L4L is to share the compassion of Christ with an unreached world. Currently they are providing food, mattresses, milk and diapers for babies, and other needs for refugees from ISIS in northern Iraq.
