Scripture of the Day - April 8, 2012

Hebrews 4:14 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.
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.

Jesus is so much to us. He is the sacrificial lamb that was slain for the sins of all humanity. John 1:29 He gave Himself as the offering for sin Hebrews 9:14 but He is also the great high priest. This is significant because it was the high priest who sprinkled the blood of the sacrifice on the mercy seat to atone for the sins of the people. Now we know this didn't take away their sins, it only rolled them ahead to the day that Jesus would die for the sins of the people once and for all. And because He did, and because He rose from the grave, we don't have to go through a human priest to reach God. We can go straight to the throne of grace because Jesus is our high priest! We don't have to wait and go once a year, we can find mercy at any time. The door is always open.
