Since, then, we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast to our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who in every respect has been tested as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrews 4:14-16)
That is my latest little nugget I came across through my Bible reading today.
Jesus has been there and done that. Jesus knows what I am going through. Jesus feels my pain and understands my struggles. Jesus knows the fire I walk through and the raging flood waters that surround me. Jesus knows the temptations I experience and hardships I face. Jesus knows me AND you inside and out. And with all this knowing and understanding, Jesus goes to the cross FOR YOU and FOR ME. So therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Wow…do I ever need that.
Praise be to God!!!
