PENTATEUCH MEDITATION: Our Melchizedec High Priest

Communion Meditation…

Our Melchizedek High Priest

Then Melchizedek, king of Salem brought out bread and wine. He was priest of God Most High, and he blessed Abram…. – Genesis 14:18-19a

Jesus became a priest forever after the order of Mel­chizedek. This mysterious figure blessed Abram and served him bread and wine. This is the first mention of bread and wine together in the Bible.

Jesus, our High Priest, offers us bread and wine at His Table.

After receiving bread and wine from Melchizedek, Abram gave a tithe to this priest of God Most High.

Our custom is to make our offering after we receive the bread and wine from Jesus, our Table Host, as He blesses us.

We never hear any more about Melchizedek, except once in the Psalms and in Hebrews as that book talks about Melchizedek and his priesthood being greater than that of the Levitical priests.

Hebrews makes the point that the greater blesses the lesser. Jesus blesses me at this Table. He is greater than I, and I need to live recognizing that fact.

Lord, let me live always remembering that Jesus, who blesses me, is greater than I – and that I need to live in submission to Him always. Amen.
