14 So then, since we have a great high priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to what we believe. This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.
Insight - Because of Christ we have direct access to God. Even when we are weak and fail we can come to him. He understands the situations we face because he himself experienced them. He does not condemn us but gives us grace and mercy when we are at our lowest.
Prayer - Jesus, thank you that you have loved me right where I am at. When I was at my worst you died for me, and because of that I take hold of your forgiveness. Help me to live each day more like you Jesus. Amen
