A Thought for Today: “Jesus the Great High Priest”
Jesus Christ has many roles for mankind.
One of them is that He is our forever great high priest.
Please read the following verses.
14 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess.
15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are — yet was without sin.
16 Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
Christ is fully God, fully human.
I am not sure I can explain how He is both. Scripture says it is true, that settles it.
Christ has experienced all that mankind experienced.
He did not sin, not even once.
This allows Him to die, not for His sins, but for our sins.
Praise be to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, our Forever Great High Priest.
