Hebrews 4:14-16 Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (ESV)
To fully understand Jesus as High Priest it would take much study – I'm not going to do that but I'll say this – that the priests and high priests of the Old Testament had special roles given to them by God, especially as a go between between the people and God. Jesus has become such but on a greater level for each of us. A lot more could be said but again, I want to keep this short and simple so....
Dear Lord, thank you
- For making Jesus our Great high Priest
