When we’re going through something difficult, it can be hard to feel like we are truly known. It can be difficult to feel that we have people truly with us. In our passage today, the author of Hebrews wants us to know and understand that Jesus gets what it is to be us, and that he is someone who we can rely on.
Jesus, Our Advocate
Message by Josh Mutter – February 14, 2021
Hebrews 4:14-16 NIV Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
Jesus brings us to God and brings God to us
Because Jesus is who he is, we know that God hears us as we are
- Come to God
- Wait for God
- Write it Down
- Reflect and Pray
