Today when you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.

Melchisedek, a mysterious figure of the Old Testament, was a forerunner of Jesus who fulfilled his priestly role at the Last Supper. Even as he was dying on the cross, Jesus fulfilled his priestly mission. He promised paradise to the good thief, took care of Mary’s welfare and then, saying ‘It is finished’, through his death and resurrection gave believers throughout the world the promise of salvation. To the Hebrews, Paul spells out what grace Jesus has bestowed on us through obedience to his father in heaven.

We are followers of the world’s greatest giver who has shown in his life of forgiveness and caring, the perfect model for living the Christian life. Let us become ‘partakers of the Holy Spirit’ as we taste the goodness of God and put our ‘new wine into new wine skins’.
