Our High Priest

I know that my Redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand upon the earth. –Job 19:25 (NIV)

I know my Redeemer lives. Other people’s gods are dead. Our isn’t.

Jesus died, yes, but He also rose from the dead. Then instead of dying again, He ascended into Heaven.

He is not dead. In fact, He is at the right hand of the Father, making intercession for us. He is our High Priest.

What does a high priest do? In the Old Testament, he used to remove all the unnecessary parts of a person’s offering before he presented it to God.

Jesus does the same thing for us with our prayers. He takes out all the imperfect parts before offering them to God. Therefore our prayers are perfect when they reach God the Father.

Doesn’t that make you glad that Jesus is alive and on our side?
