OUR HIGH PRIEST


Hebrews 4:15


"For we do not have a high priest who is unable to
sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one
who has been tempted in every way, just as we are
--yet without sin." NIV


"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." KJV


Do we really understand the trials and temptations
our Lord experienced when He lived on this earth?
Many times, we get caught up in our troubles and, if
we're honest, we either ask God why or beg Him to
relieve us. If this world was unjust and difficult for our
Lord, why would we think we would escape difficulty?
Jesus Christ showed us how to endure the things of
this world without sinning. Then he said, "Follow me."


Heavenly Father, so often we forget that our Lord
went through far more than we will ever have to in
this world. We expect a special, more easy journey
in this life because we are Christians, but, Lord, that
is not the right attitude, for this is not our home. Help
us to follow the steps of Jesus Christ as we encounter
trials here on earth, in His name we pray, Amen.

Hi Bobbi. I follow this blog, along with a few other Christian-themed blogs. All fo them are meaningful in some way.

However, I was telling my wife this morning that this is my favorite because your posts are always based on scripture, and your commentary is concise, and your prayer is to the point.

I come away from your posts each morning with my eyes fully open to the Lord. Thank you for your contribution to The Cause.

It gets hard sometimes for us to pick up our Cross daily and follow Him, but thank God for the blood of Jesus that covers us. Blessings and Merry CHRISTmas. Lloyd
