He Is the King of GLORY!
Be blessed as you read:

10 - Eternal Sacrifice!

Psalm 24:
3 Who may climb the mountain of the Lord?
Who may stand in his holy place?
4 Only those whose hands and hearts are pure,
who do not worship idols and never tell lies.
5 They will receive the Lord's blessing
and have a right relationship with God their saviour.
6 Such people may seek you and worship in your presence,
O God of Jacob.

How do mere human beings like us, come and stand with confidence before the King of Glory?
The writer to the Hebrews explains it this way:

The Lord Jesus came as High Priest of this better system that we now have. He went into that greater, perfect tabernacle in heaven, not made by men nor part of this world, and once for all took blood into that inner room, the Holy of Holies, and sprinkled it on the mercy seat; but it was not the blood of goats and calves.
No, he took his own blood, and with it he, by himself, made sure of our eternal salvation....

For Christ has entered into heaven itself to appear now before God as our Friend. It was not in the earthly place of worship that he did this, for that was merely a copy of the real temple in heaven.
Nor has he offered himself again and again, as the high priest down here on earth offers animal blood in the Holy of Holies each year.
If that had been necessary, then he would have had to die again and again, ever since the world began. But no! He came once for all, at the end of the age, to put away the power of sin forever by dying for us.
And just as it is destined that men die only once, and after that comes judgment, so also Christ died only once as an offering for the sins of many people; and he will come again, but not to deal again with our sins.
This time he will come bringing salvation to all those who are eagerly and patiently waiting for him.
Hebrews 9:11-12, 24-28 (TLB)

For the free gift of eternal salvation is now being offered to everyone; and along with this gift comes the realization that God wants us to turn from godless living and sinful pleasures and to live good, God-fearing lives day after day, looking forward to that wonderful time we've been expecting, when his glory shall be seen,the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ.
Titus 2:11-13 (TLB)
This is why the Lord Jesus Christ IS the King of Glory: He was willing to die and provide His own sinless blood as the eternal sacrifice for all who would trust Him with their heart and life.
