"High Priest" - Day 12
Hebrews 4:14-16 Therefore, since we have a great HIGH PRIEST who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a HIGH PRIEST who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. This verse contains it all. Back in the day, a high priest was an intermediary between the people and God. With Jesus as our high priest, we are guaranteed a compassionate advocate (as we saw earlier). Let's be thankful for our high priest in Jesus because He can intercede for us before God, offering the sacrifice of Himself for our sins!
