Jesus is our High Priest. He is the Father’s sovereign choice as mediator between man and God. His blood built the bridge of reconciliation. As you read these Bible verses remember we owe Him a debt of gratitude.
Jesus, I thank You for being my High Priest. You are a sympathetic High Priest, Your Word says, ‘He Himself knows our frame; He is mindful that we are [but] dust.’ Your mercy is great dear Lord! Because of Your mercy I can conﬁdently draw near to Your throne. You are there to receive my petitions and to bear the concerns of my heart.
Your goodness is too much for me. Jesus, help me to walk in a manner worthy of Your sacriﬁce. I repent for all the areas of my life that displease You. (name any sins speciﬁcally here and repent) I receive the cleansing of Your blood. Precious High Priest, I ask that You would be magniﬁed through my life!
