Our High Priest

Last Sunday we had Communion at our church, and we have the men (or in this case, young men) share something for Scripture before we partook of Communion. I found something that I wanted to share and after being encouraged by my dad and mom, I stood up and shared this. Hebrews 4:14-16 says, "Therefore, since 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 cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin. Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may find Mercy and find grace to help in time of need." These verses tell us of two personal benefits that people who have trusted in Christ have. First, We have someone who can "sympathize with our weaknesses" because He "has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin". And two, we can "come come confidently to the throne of grace," because God knows our need.

Grace, Mercy, and Peace, From God the Father & Christ Jesus our Lord,
