Hebrews 4:14-16 (KJV)
14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
Hebrews 5:1-6 (KJV)
1 For every high priest taken from among men is ordained for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins:
2 Who can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way; for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity.
3 And by reason hereof he ought, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for sins.
4 And no man taketh this honour unto himself, but he that is called of God, as was Aaron.
5 So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, to day have I begotten thee.
6 As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.
No matter what life brings, we can live in a state of confidence because Jesus secured our salvation and acceptance before God.
Have you ever met anyone famous? Who was it? What were the circumstances?
How did you feel before, during, and after that meeting?
What is one thing that might have made you more confident during that experience?
Some people equate approaching God with meeting an earthly VIP (very important person). As a result, they feel intimidated or hesitant to approach God. But God wants us to know that we can approach Him confidently and boldly, not because of what we have done but because of what Jesus has done. No matter what life brings, we can live in a state of confidence because Jesus secured our salvation and acceptance before God.
We look forward to seeing you Sunday Morning in the Gym. God Bless and we wiil see you there!
