“Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”
We have a great high priest, Jesus the Son of God. Having lived among us, He knows our temptations. But, He also knows how to overcome those temptations and avoid sin at every point. So, we can come boldly to God in prayer to obtain mercy and grace when we need it.
Lord, thank You that believers no longer need an imperfect high priest from among us. Thank You that Jesus is our perfect and eternal great high priest that has been tempted as we are but found to be without sin. Thank You that He sympathizes with us. Thank You that we can come boldly before Your throne of grace because of Him.
