They Are Weak But He Is Strong

For the law appoints as high priests men who are weak, but the promise of the oath, which came after the law, appoints a Son, who has been perfected forever. Hebrews 7:28 HCSB

There is a beloved song that we learned as children entitled, “Jesus Loves Me”. The first verse includes the lyrics, “They are weak but He is strong”, but there are several more verses to the song that perhaps we never learned. They are:

Jesus loves me! This I know,
For the Bible tells me so;
Little ones to Him belong;
They are weak, but He is strong
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
The Bible tells me so.
Jesus loves me! This I know,
As He loved so long ago,
Taking children on His knee,
Saying, “Let them come to Me.”
Jesus loves me still today,
Walking with me on my way,
Wanting as a friend to give
Light and love to all who live.
Jesus loves me! He who died
Heaven’s gate to open wide;
He will wash away my sin,
Let His little child come in.
Jesus loves me! He will stay
Close beside me all the way;
Thou hast bled and died for me,
I will henceforth live for Thee.

This verse in Hebrews reminds us that the Levitical priests were weak. They were human and were sinners. On the other hand, Jesus is strong. He never yielded to temptation. He was without sin; therefore His death served as the perfect sacrifice that would last forever. His death brought us eternal life.

Challenge: Yes, Jesus loves you and died for your sins. Accept Him as your personal Lord and Savior. He wants you to come to Him just like a little child. Trust Him with your life and daily live for Him. It is the only way to have abundant life.
