But when Christ came as high priest of the good things that are now already here, he went through the greater and more perfect tabernacle that is not made with human hands, that is to say, is not a part of this creation. Hebrews 9:11

Jesus is indeed our high priest. He carries many other titles as well – Wonderful Counselor, King of Kings, Lamb of God – the list goes on and on. However, the Son of God put aside all His titles and glory in order to come to earth to save us and share God’s love. How is it possible that sinful creatures like us could mean so much to Him?

Our failure to be obedient to God’s will is painful to Him, but it’s not the end of the story by any means – God came looking for us to redeem us from our sin and make us part of His kingdom work. Not only have we been saved, we are called into the “family business” to share His grace and goodness with everyone.

What does God have on the agenda for you today? Tell someone about His love and what it means to you. Let everyone see His image in you, living in harmony with one another as Christ taught us.

Heavenly Father, we are so thankful for the gift of Your Son as our high priest, mentor and brother. May we follow the example He set, loving You and each other eternally. Amen.
