Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. Hebrews 4:14 NIV
3 SIMPLE TRUTHS THAT REGULARLY CONFRONT US
Life is harder than I think it should be.
Temptation is a constant reality.
Most of my pain is unexpected.
JESUS MY HIGH PRIEST
He had to be one of us, so he could serve God as our merciful and faithful high priest and sacrifice himself for the forgiveness of our sins. And now that Jesus has suffered and was tempted, he can help anyone else who is tempted. Hebrews 2:17-18 CEV
Jesus understands my pain and has the power to help.
Jesus understands my temptation has the power to forgive.
For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Hebrews 4:15 NIV
Jesus understands my weaknesses and has the grace I need.
Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. Hebrews 4:15-16 NIV
