A Better Hope

 

We draw near to God
through the bringing in

of a better
hope

according to the power
of endless life

our forever High Priest
arose.

**********

The One who draws us near to God is with me.

***********

“And it is yet far more evident if, in the likeness of Mechizedek, there arise another priest”

“who has come not according to the law of a fleshly commandment, but according to the power of an endless life.”

“. . . for the law made nothing perfect; on the other hand, there is the bringing in of a better hope, through which we draw near to God.”

Hebrews 7:15,16,18. NKJV

Share In The Sufferings

 

We’ve been saved and called
with a holy calling

for the gospel

bringing forth His power
and praise.

I can suffer for the gospel according to Your power, for You are with me.
