Something to consider here; it is in a note format rather than a really finished product, because I have trouble filling in the blanks sometimes.  I leave it to you…

Heb. 3:1- Consider (be attentive to, fix your eyes and mind on) Christ, the Apostle and High Priest of our profession (this is the standard, or required, measure of the believer).

Eph. 4:7- grace by the MEASURE of Christ’s gift (the measure of the gift- the full extent of Christ’s power and grace available to the believer).
Eph. 4:13- MEASURE of the stature of the fullness of Christ (The measure of the giver- the exemplar for the life of the Christ-like believer).
Eph. 4:16- according to the effectual working in the MEASURE of every part (the measure of the gifted- to the greatest capacity one is able, as a part of the body of Christ, to serve Him and be inhabited by Him).
We are measured up to the Apostle (one who is sent) and the High Priest (he who intercedes for us continually- Strong’s G749, Heb. 2:17).
Isa. 59:15-16- Yea, truth faileth; and he [that] departeth from evil maketh himself a prey: and the LORD saw [it], and it displeased him that [there was] no judgment. And he saw that [there was] no man, and wondered that [there was] no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him.
If we fail to measure up, then we leave a life of evil only to become a mark for the devil.  God seeks the intercessors.
The priest ministers reconciliation (Heb. 2:17).  We must measure up to this.
Reconciliation and intercession- aiding and comforting people in Christ’s love in contrast to their expected judgment or punishment; engaging the gates of hell in battle for souls.
We must always be somewhere between the altar and the porch (Joel 2:17), going to and viewing the world; showing righteousness, justice, and judgment; and being with the lost; then returning to the place of intercession for their souls.
