Jesus knows

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!!!

  1. Well, you are right, …and yet… you did DO a “work” to get her to the NH. You could have refused. Or you could have gotten someone else to do it, which would have been OK. But you did it.

    Non believers also do “works.” And maybe do them with the right attitude as well.

    In any case, whatever the attitude, it is still better to do something than to sit home in Joy in Your Faith with nothing to show for it.

    And sometimes we find that we will our actions beyond our feelings and our feelings will follow.

    Now, don’t come here and ask me what I’m doing for my “neighbor.” I just talk a good talk.
