Hebrews 5:7–10 (ESV)

Jesus the Great High Priest

In the days of his flesh, Jesus offered up prayers and supplications, with loud cries and tears, to him who was able to save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverence. Although he was a son, he learned obedience through what he suffered. And being made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey him, 10 being designated by God a high priest after the order of Melchizedek.


Jesus Christ, our true High Priest, shares our humanity and knows the weaknesses that we experience. Being one with the Father, He is the source of God’s full forgiveness. If we approach God confident in our own goodness, we will be condemned according to the strictness of the Law. But Christ Jesus is gentle and understanding. He forgives us, gives us confidence before the Father, and helps us in all our needs.


I pray: Lord Jesus, our true High Priest, help us, in our weakness, to call to our Father for all that we need. Amen.[1]

"Depart in Peace" What a blessing when the world is so chaotic! Followers of Christ can find their peace in Him.
