Topic: Call On Your High Priest.
Opening Scripture:Hebrew 4:15-“For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathise with our weaknesses, but was in all point tempted as we are, yet without sin”.
Jesus is our high priest. We know He came to earth as a man we see this from John 1:14 and the Word was made flesh and dwelt amongst us (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father) full of grace and truth.
Now, understand Jesus becoming flesh also went through what we are going through . The bible says as a matter of fact he sympathizes with our weaknesses, he too was tempted at some points, so when you go through tempting situations know that Jesus doesn’t just know what you are going through, he feels it this is why He’s your High Priest. Who is a High Priest? (you may ask). Going through the bible, a High Priest is one who stands for the people before God; he alone goes into the holies of holies, it was more rigid in the old testament.
The difference between the old testament high priest and the new testaments is that the high priest of old testament just presented their case but our own feels our situations and has direct access to the Father and glad to tell you that He has a name and He is Jesus. For this reason, Hebrews 4:16 says ‘let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in the time of need. Are you going through life’s worries? Call on your high priest, is name His Jesus you have access to Him in prayers, He would answer you-Happy belated easter. JESUS HAS RESURRECTED.
Lesson for the day- We have a High Priest who understands us.
Quote For The Day- ‘Our High Priest has the solution to everything’.
