Brothers and sisters: Since 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 one who has similarly been tested in every way, yet without sin. So let us confidently approach the throne of grace to receive mercy and to find grace for timely help.
In the days when Christ was in the flesh, he offered prayers and supplications with loud cries and tears to the one who was able to save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverence. Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered; and when he was made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him.
Jesus knows what we suffer in our lives. He became man so He would know what we do and so we would know that our God can relate to us. He is not someone sitting on a cloud watching us scurry around. He created us, lived with us and died for us. What more can we ask for? Apparently a lot because so many do not believe or think He is not relevant anymore. Where do you stand? Do you confess you know and believe in Him? I do!
Prayer: Heavenly Father thank you for the gift of your Son. When I hurt I know you hurt also, when I am happy I know you celebrate with me. In Jesus’ holy name I give you thanks, praise and honor, Amen!
Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.
