An Indestructible Life

Description

God knows how to bring new life from utter destruction. Even though we may destroy our own lives, we serve a Savior who can give us a new one.

Hebrews 7:11-16 If perfection could have been attained through the Levitical priesthood—and indeed the law given to the people established that priesthood—why was there still need for another priest to come, one in the order of Melchizedek, not in the order of Aaron? For when the priesthood is changed, the law must be changed also. He of whom these things are said belonged to a different tribe, and no one from that tribe has ever served at the altar. For it is clear that our Lord descended from Judah, and in regard to that tribe Moses said nothing about priests. And what we have said is even more clear if another priest like Melchizedek appears, one who has become a priest not on the basis of a regulation as to his ancestry but on the basis of the power of an indestructible life.

I would love to have an indestructible life; one that couldn’t be destroyed by my poor choices or by the result of outside influences. But this is the reality we live in. We live in a world where our choices can hurt others and result in the destruction of the lives we desire. We live in a world where people and things we don’t even know can change our tomorrows forever.

But even though we may destroy our own lives, we serve a Savior who can give us a new one. He promises a new beginning, a new heart, a new creation when we turn to Him. He knows how to bring life from death, new growth from utter destruction because He’s already done it – ask Him, He’ll tell you.
