Our High Priest

Something to think about.

Our High Priest

14 Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 15 For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews:14-16

He came from heaven, was tempted as we are tempted, yet sinless. He knows us. We can come before the throne of God because He is one of us. Because He lived as we live we can come before the throne and receive mercy and grace.

    How incredibly great Jesus is. To be among sinners and tempted continuously he remainded steadfast and faithful. It is so inspiring.
