“Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.” (Heb. 7:3). When speaking of our identity in Christ, we are referring to a tribe without a beginning or end. This is a lineage that is not found on earth; it is a genealogy that cannot be traced among men (Heb. 7:1-4; 17).
We are being brought to the table where we can partake of divine things. We are called to partake of things that pertain to this life and the life that is to come (1 Tim. 4:8). We should focus on this calling and not be distracted by anything; having food and raiment, we should be content (1 Tim. 6:8).
“And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:  But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” (Gen. 2:16-17). We see how man was instructed on what trees to eat of and what not to; but he disobeyed and ate of the tree God commanded him not to (Gen. 3:6). We cannot afford to be asleep this season; we should be on alert in guarding the door to our mind. We should also trust that the life of God which we are being taught is able to cater for all that we need, both naturally and spiritually.
As we share in the body of Christ via the breaking of bread, we will not just see the cross but also see the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. This is how we will be able to connect with the grace, to come into all that God has for us.
