Learning Of Jesus, Our High Priest

Today's Word of Encouragement from Wayne:

"We do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things, as we are, yet without sin"

Hebrews 4:15

Yesterday I shared with you the word in Hebrews 2:1 for us to "consider Jesus, the Apostle and High Priest of our confession" along with the truth that, recognizing ourselves as a kingdom of priests, ministering to the Lord, "partakers of a heavenly calling," awakens us to our own interest in, realization and understanding of the "High Priest of our confession," Jesus Christ. Learning of Jesus, as our High Priest, helps us immensely as we minister to the Lord, and as we live among people.

For instance, here in this verse from Hebrews chapter four, we see the sympathy of Jesus, specifically as our High Priest, towards us. He is not harsh. He is sympathetic towards us. This knowledge is intended to melt you and draw you even closer, in love, and complete trust, into the presence of Christ, your High Priest. He is so good and sympathetic. He has been through everything that you go through (and much more), yet He sympathizes with you. He understands things from your perspective, doesn’t judge you, but sympathizes with you, and the goal of His sympathy is to draw you to Him so He may heal and renew you in His light and life.

Everything He does as your High Priest is in love. His sympathy is here to draw you near, and also here that you may become more sympathetic to others, as a minister to your own sympathetic Lord in this extremely unsympathetic world. Today, as you minister as a priest to the Lord, allow the High Priest of your confession, Jesus Christ, to draw near to you and minister His sympathy to you. Become a vessel of His sympathy in His Presence and then go forth with His sympathy into this world. Hallelujah!
