Not only is Jesus our Savior and Lord, He is God’s anointed High Priest. And through Him we have been made fit to approach the awesome throne of God Most High. This means Christ’s high priestly role is an eternal and continuous one. Because of His sacrifice, He has once and for all atoned for all our sins. We’ve been sealed by His Holy Spirit which can’t be rendered void. And our access to a Holy, Omnipotent, God has been sealed as well.
Our Lord Jesus is the ultimate and final Word of God. He is the incarnate Word, who took upon Himself human flesh (John 1). And as our great, High Priest, He is forever interceding day and night for His Church. Jesus is the only Mediator between man and God. We need to remember this each time we seek to approach God’s mercy seat. Beloved, Jesus is our righteous, Kinsman-Redeemer, who has become our Mediator. He was given the name that is above every name. He cannot fail! And all of us who have trusted in His death, burial, and resurrection, for the forgiveness of our sins and eternal life, have been called to “hold fast our confession.” (v.14)
No wonder we are exhorted by the writer of the book of Hebrews to hold fast to our confession! To take God at His word and boldly approach His throne of grace in order to leave our baskets of burdens there at His feet; trusting the One Who is able to make all grace abound to us! He waits to hear from you!
