Hebrews 4:14-5:10. Jesus is one of us. He understands us. He knows what makes us tick. When we fail, he knows why. We can come to him, pleading for mercy and grace again, because he is able to sympathize with our weaknesses. He does not tolerate or condone sin, but he can forgive and restore. He is our great high priest. He was called by his Father for that very purpose. Only he was given that priesthood for eternity. He “became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey him” (9).
LORD, thank you that you have provided a source of eternal grace for us.
