A priest is the man who stand in gap between the seat of mercy where God speak to His people. He is the person that takes the offer sacrifices on behalf of the people to the Lord in order to make known intention of the people to the Lord. He after which return to give response to the people regarding the sacrifice offered if it is acceptable or not. He will never offer himself as a sacrifice but Jesus Christ offered himself and as well make it known to all that the offered sacrifice was acceptable.
14. Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess.
15. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin.
16. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. Hebrews 4:14-16 (NIV).
He was and is the only priest that has ever ascended into heaven and could reveal the magnitude of mercy embedded in approaching the throne of grace without fear. He understand our shortcomings that could hinder us from approaching the throne such as our sins but He did everything beforehand and gave us all confidence that we needed.
Brethren there are no borders to how far you can approach the seat of mercy also known as the throne of grace. Ensure you are getting closer at all time because He await your attention and really want to visit your matter with the knowledge that you are in need of mercy. Amen.
May you receive the actual mercy needed for you exploits today in Jesus name. Amen.
