The Bible says that Jesus is our Great High Priest. So what does that mean to us? What is a priest? A priest is recognized as a mediator between us and God. Yes! Jesus is the bridge that allows us to cross from death in our sin to life with our Heavenly Father. Jesus is our mediator…Jesus is our Priest! He is the one and only mediator, the one and only priest, the one and only that we need!!
When you are struggling with something – tell Jesus about it. When you have heartache – tell Jesus about it. When you are in pain – tell Jesus about it. When you are thankful – tell Jesus about it. When you have sinned – tell JESUS about it. He is all that you need too.
Thank You Jesus that we can have a personal relationship with You, our Savior. Thank You that we can cast all our cares upon You and You are faithful and trustworthy to walk us through each and every struggle, heartache and pain. Thank You that we can bring our wrong doings to You for forgiveness. Thank You for taking the cross and bridging the gap between us and our Heavenly Father so that we can also have a relationship with Him.
