Here are some words from the Letter to the Hebrews: ‘Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we have not a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sinning. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need’.

And: ‘He is able for all time to save those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them’.

This great High Priest fulfils His task of love by laying down His life in atonement for the sins of humanity. Let us then be unafraid to draw near to Him, for He will surely come to our aid in our time of need. May God bless you this day.
