Our High Priest
We have one in heaven who understands.
His name is Jesus.
Here is the miracle of His love. He who is the Bread of Life began His ministry hungering. He who is the Water of Life ended His ministry thirsting. Christ hungered as a man, and fed the hungry as God. He was weary, and yet He is our rest. He paid tribute, and yet He is the King of Kings. He was called a devil, yet He cast out devils. He prayed, and yet He hears prayer. He wept, and He is the One who dries our tears. He was sold for thirty pieces of silver, and yet He redeemed the world with His precious blood. He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, and yet He is the Good Shepherd.
Does heaven seem distant and unreachable?
Jesus is there and awaits your cry.
Do you think you are passing through trials and tests unknown by any other “…but was in all points tempted like as we are..”. (Hebrews 4:15).
Have you been hurt by another?
He endured the cross with all its shame. Do you have less than others?
He had no place to lay His head.
Do some leave you out of their gatherings?
He was despised and rejected.
Our great High priest in heaven knows every burden. Take all your needs to Him and leave them there!
