The House of the High Priest

Nehemiah 3:21 After him repaired Meremoth the son of Urijah the son of Koz another piece, from the door of the house of Eliashib even to the end of the house of Eliashib.

Heb_4:14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. 15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

Eliashib is the high priest and his house is mentioned in this text. It seems pieces of this house are in disrepair. Christ is our high priest …and He dwells not in temples made with hands …His place of dwelling is our heart. So what is the shape of your heart … how is the door to your heart, what kinds of thoughts do you admit into your heart? What can be said of the integrity and uprightness of your heart ? … is Christ dwelling in your heart or is your heart full of ambitions and lusts.? Check your heart and ask God to help you with sincerity. Like David you must pray for God to reveal the state of your heart so you may make needed adjustments.

Psa 139:23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: 24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Verses for further meditation
