But now Jesus, our High Priest, has been given a ministry that is far superior to the old priesthood, for he is the one who mediates for us a far better covenant with God, based on better promises. – Hebrews 8:6 (NLT).
Jesus is our High Priest. The old priests used to perform the rituals and offerings of the Old Covenant. Jesus died once and for all for all our sins–past, present and future. Because of this, we have a far better covenant with God. We have something better than Moses and the children of Israel in the wilderness. We have God in us through the Person of the Holy Spirit. We are His dwelling place. And we have access to Him 24/7, even in the midst of our troubles.
