Jesus a priest because he is INDESTRUCTIBLE (Hebrews 7:15-16)

"This becomes even more evident when another priest arises in the likeness of Melchizedek, who has become a priest, not on the basis of a legal requirement concerning bodily descent, but by the power of an indestructible life." - Hebrews 7:15-16

When you read this picture a movie preview for a DC comic with a deep voice, over the top voice over. The music intensifies and the voice drops even deeper as it says, "but by the power of an INDESTRUCTIBLE life."

How cool is it that our Jesus lived an indestructible life? How cool is it that if we knew someone else who lived an indestructible life we would make them into a superhero. Indestructible man. And how cool is it that our God is even bigger than that.

Superman was pretty tough, but not when he was around kryptonite. Our God doesn't have kryptonite. He is always stronger, always more powerful, and can always win whenever He wants to. He will win too. Our God is so much more infinitely powerful than His enemy that if we were to really understand the power gap we would think the battle was uninteresting because it is so weighted in God's favor.

I love this. Our God is a priest. Our Jesus is a priest. Not because of who His father was (a mere carpenter) or who His mother was (no offense Catholics, but she's hardly worthy of praise), but because he is indestructible.

By the power of an indestructible life.
