We must not ignore the High Priesthood of Jesus as something of little consequence. The fact is that apart from His high priestly sacrifice and incessant intercession for us, we would be lost. It is because we have such a High Priest, that in spite of our weaknesses and failures, there remains mercy for us at God’s throne. Our High Priest has himself gone through the heavens and sat down at the right hand of Majesty, having already arrived at the destination to which we strive to enter. May this truth cause us to grow in our assurance and hold fast the confidence of our faith.
