March 21 – LD 12, Day 3: Our Glorious High Priest

Thursday the 21st of March

in Heidelberg Catechism Meditations

Psalm 110:4 “The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.”

Christ is not only teacher, but he is priest. What good would it be for Christ merely to tell us the way to go when we would refuse to listen and obey Him? He is our Only High Priest who by the one sacrifice of His body has redeemed us! He did what no other priest could ever do. He brought the Sacrifice and He offered it up as Priest. He is Sacrificer and sacrificial Lamb at the same time. He paid the price necessary to save us from our sins. He substituted Himself for each of His children. Jesus Christ proclaimed the way, and paved that way by going through the waves and tumults of God’s wrath against His people for their sins.

Now, Christ is in heaven as our High Priest. He makes constant prayers on our behalf to preserve us and keep us in the faith. He defends us over against the wrath of God against sin. He reminds the Father that our sins have been covered and we are justified by His blood. He is our way to God just as the Priest in the Old Testament was the way to God for the people. But, we have a victorious, glorified priest, and therefore our prayers will be heard.

Rejoice today in the wonder of Christ’s perfect sacrifice on your behalf and in the ability to come to God in prayer with the confidence that those prayers will not be cast off, but will be heard. Christ brings those prayers to the Father who has promised to give us all things we desire of Him in Christ’s name.
