For Christian Service
(BCP P. 43)
O LORD our heavenly Father, whose blessed Son came not to be ministered unto, but to minister; We beseech thee to bless all who, following in his steps, give themselves to the service of their fellow men. Endue them with wisdom, patience, and courage, that they may strengthen the weak and raise up those who fall; and, being inspired by thy love, may worthily minister in thy Name to the suffering, the friendless, and the needy; for the sake of him who laid down his life for us, the same thy Son, our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen

Prayer For Our Police
Almighty God, we beseech thee to pour thy blessing upon our country's police. Strengthen and protect them in all danger. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
Heb.9:13 “For if the blood of bulls and of goats sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God.”
Today's Epistle directs our attention to Christ's position as Supreme High Priest. This is particularly appropriate in this time of the church year, in which we ponder His great atoning sacrifice for us on the cross.
The Old Testament High Priest was the highest official of God's people.
He was God's representative to mankind.
He taught the people God's commandments and urged them to follow God's laws.
He was the people's representative before God.
He offered sacrifices for them to God of bullocks and goats asking God's pardon for them.
He was Israel's spiritual head of all the people.
He was physically to represent the highest type of Israel's manhood. There were twenty-two physical defects that could temporarily disqualify a man from serving in that position and one hundred and forty that would permanently bar him from that office. He had a very special type of clothing to wear when functioning in this position to set him apart from the rest of the nation as superior.
Even with all of these special requirements and qualifications, the special vestments and symbols, still the High Priest was only a man.
He was a sinner like all the rest. He was as much in need of God's forgiveness as those he was representing before God.
How different and how much more exalted is our Great High Priest Jesus Christ!
While in every sense a true man, our Great High Priest Jesus had not the slightest taint of sin. His every thought and action was in perfect harmony with the will of the Father.
His sacrificial offering for us wasn't that of bullocks or goats, but that of the Lamb of God, himself, slain for the forgiveness of our sins to reconcile us to the Father.
His blood shed for us on the cross won for us eternal redemption.
As we at this time of year again ponder this wonderful love shown toward us by this sacrifice of our Great High Priest, it should cause us as Christians to increased faithfulness and service to Him, the one true Living God.
Especially in this time of great sickness around the world we need to remember this.
As we are more than ever made aware of our great human weakness, all Christians should, with great thankfulness, place our complete trust in Jesus our Lord and Savior and Great High Priest.
