chronological day 352 :)

Please read Hebrews 4:14-16, and Hebrews chapters 5, 6, and 7.  Come on back and let’s visit – does anything stand out to you today?

“that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need” Hebrews 4:16

In this sentence, the word “THAT” works like the word “BECAUSE”. It’s important to notice: beyond salvation, why did Jesus have to be tempted in all things? BECAUSE/THAT we need to know that help is available to us and that we are understood.

“Though He was a SON, HE learned obedience by the things He suffered” Hebrews 5:8

Even though Jesus was fully God Himself, He still took on our infirmities and all our temptations and He did have to suffer.  We would be wrong to expect or even assume that we will get out of this life without sufferings. Growth comes through trials. (Will you allow a side note here? We make a mistake sometimes by thinking “if it’s uncomfortable, it must be wrong” or “if it doesn’t make me happy, it must be wrong”.  We make a mistake when we think our comfort and happiness is the goal – our holiness and righteousness is the goal.  Living a life worthy of our calling in Christ is the goal.  Making it to heaven and communicating the Gospel to as many people as we can is the goal.). What an amazing example Jesus sets before us!

    So much insight in today’s reading, I never did look or relate to Jesus as being a high priest. How did I miss that? Was I more concerned for his safety and the miracles he was working while on earth to see this? What stood out to me today was what I have been battling for a while now. Hebrews 5:12, “ You have been believers so long now that you ought to be teaching others.” As a Leader in Celebrate Recovery I was still dwelling in my past every time I brought it up. I know it brings healing to others to hear your story but part of me stayed there in the past. It took a while for me to accept my past and let it go. It’s there Incase I need to reflect but I don’t have to live there. I needed this scripture today!
