Hebrews 4:14-16 (ESV)
"14 Since then 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 is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need."
For we are not alone! Church we are not alone! We have one who speaks on our behalf. We have one who suffered on our behalf. We have one who has passed through the heavens and now sits at the right hand of God the Father. Our hope is hidden in Him. Hold fast than church. Hold fast to your confession and faith in Him. He is worthy!
Our God-Man has lived and died for us. He was tempted for us and conquered temptation, and sin, and death for us! He lives now and sympathizes for you right now. Whatever you are going through...He knows and has felt what you are feeling.
So whatever shall we do? What are we, His church, called to do?
Let us with confidence draw near to the throne of grace. Let us pray that we will receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need! Oh come Lord Jesus! Will you do something spectacular in your church on this day? Will you use us in an amazing movement of your Spirit? Church...We have a Great High Priest! Let's draw near to Him.
