September 28, 2022 - Hebrews 5-7

“For every high priest chosen from among men is appointed to act on behalf of men in relation to God, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins” (5:1). But Jesus offered what no other high priest could offer. He gave himself – a perfect, spotless, acceptable sacrifice – for us: “And being made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey him, being designated by God a high priest after the order of Melchizedek” (5:9,10). “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” (7:25). What a Savior!


Man of Sorrows! what a name

for the Son of God, who came

ruined sinners to reclaim.

Hallelujah! What a Savior!


Bearing shame and scoffing rude,

in my place condemned he stood;

sealed my pardon with his blood.

Hallelujah! What a Savior!


Guilty, vile, and helpless we;

spotless Lamb of God was he;

full atonement can it be?

Hallelujah! What a Savior!


Lifted up was he to die;

“It is finished!” was his cry;

now in heaven exalted high.

Hallelujah! What a Savior!


When he comes, our glorious King,

all his ransomed home to bring,

then anew this song we’ll sing:

Hallelujah! What a Savior! --P. P. Bliss (1875)
