Hebrews 4:15-16 NIV 2011
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. 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.
Jesus, the Son of God, is our Great High Priest. Aaron was the first high priest to go into the Most Holy Place. Jesus passed from earth and ascended into heaven to advocate for all who follow Him. Jesus experienced temptation. Hebrews 2:18, “Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.” He was sinless. Jesus is ready to advocate before the Father for believers that become kids of the King through faith in Him. Jesus is our constant help in times of temptation and weakness.
Today began with a conversation contrasting a day begun in God’s Word and one that’s not. Daily I choose to begin writing so that I’m spending time in His Word. When I don’t, apathy or temptation creep in and I’m inclined to focus inward on me rather than upward toward Him. I am a kid of the King and accountable for my actions. Jesus calls us to know His Word through study. He is our constant help.
How was Jesus our constant help today?
