Jesus – Our High Priest

by Robert Rajamani

Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, …Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. – (Hebrews 4:14,16)

We can come into the presence of God our Father with all boldness and full of Grace. We can do so because God Himself has made a way for us, who were sinners, to come to His presence without any condemnation, guilt and fear of punishment. It was in the heart of the Father to make a way for us to come back to Him. We had disconnected from Him because of the disobedience of one man Adam, but it pleased God to make a way for us to give full access to His heart through Jesus Christ.

Jesus is not only the lamb which was sacrificed for our sins, but He is also the High Priest who took the blood of the lamb, his own blood and has entered the most Holy place of the heavenly tabernacle and offered it to God on behalf of us. Because of this High Priest we have in Christ, we are righteous. We have complete right standing with God, no one can condemn us. Now we can come boldly into the throne room of God. We can talk to Him as a son or daughter talks to the Father.

Anything that we lack is made complete in Christ. If we lack Faith, the Faith of Christ completes it for us (Hebrews 12:2). If we have sin, the High Priest has offered an eternal sacrifice for all our sins and it’s taken care of (Hebrews 9:14). Christ who has entered the heavens and finished the sacrifice of atonement for us and is seated on the right hand of God intercedes for us even now (Hebrews 7:25). If you need anything, just bring the request to the throne room of Grace and Jesus our High Priest will get it from the Father. (Hebrews 4:16)

We are covered from all sides. We lack nothing. So be bold in the assurance that God loves you and done everything to take care of the sin problem. Just know who you are in Christ. You are the son of God. You bear His image and nature. You are the righteousness of God and He will make your righteousness shine forth as light (Psalm 37:6). You can live life in victory. Dispel everything that stands against you.

Be bold in the Righteousness of Christ and live in Victory. He is your High Priest!
