The Father Called Jesus to Be High Priest

What greater honor could there be than to serve as high priest to God for man? The honor is so high that no one can take that honor to himself, “And no man takes this honor to himself, but he who is called by God, just as Aaron was” (Hebrews 5:4).
Aaron did not seek the high priesthood, nor did Jesus evidently, but God called both to serve in that capacity, and of course the roll Jesus played was far higher than that of Aaron.
Let us be ready to serve the Lord, but let us not seek to glorify ourselves.
