God in ages past, appointed Aaron, (of the tribe of Levi) a high priest, whose rod sprouted and put forth buds, and produced blossoms, and yielded ripe almonds. In his duties, Aaron offered gifts and sacrifices for sins, for himself and the people, and blessed them as God instructed.
The same God caused a Rod to come forth from the stem of Jesse and a Branch out of his roots—Our Great High Priest, (of the tribe of Judah) the Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior of the world, sinless Sin-Bearer, Mediator, Perfecter.
By Him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name. But to do good and to communicate, forget not: for with such sacrifices, God is well pleased. (Hebrews 13:15 & 16)
Experience the glory of living daily in the presence of God. Great is His love and care.
