Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them. For it was indeed fitting that we should have such a high priest, holy, innocent, unstained, separated from sinners, and exalted above the heavens. He has no need, like those high priests, to offer sacrifices daily, first for his own sins and then for those of the people, since he did this once for all when he offered up himself. (Hebrews 7:25-27)
It is comforting to know that Jesus became like us so that He can identify with us, but it is even more comforting to know that He is nothing like us so that He can be our great high priest. Because He is righteous and holy, He is able to save even someone as desperate and devastated as me. He is the final priest because He still lives and rules today. Even when I am struggling, Jesus is interceding for me. Father, I praise you for you are holy. You deserve all of my attention, devotion, reverence and respect. Thank you for giving yourself for me. Please keep me in your fold as I abide in you.
