THE NEW MAN
Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Hebrews 4:14,15
The old priesthood was done away with at the cross and the veil of separation was torn from top to bottom by the angels, signifying our access by faith into the throne of God by the shed blood of Jesus.
We as believers no longer confess our sins to a man but to the High Priest, Jesus Christ! Our mediator of a new covenant, written in blood by the author and perfector of our faith and Savior of our souls. Jesus understands our spiritual condition, trials and temptations being temped in all things but without sin He is able to come to our aid!
By becoming new men, we are washed in the blood of Jesus, set free from all condemnation and released from our sins and transgressions! Commanded to love and commissioned to serve we are His Royal Priesthood sent to deliver the "Good News" of His gospel! Sealed unto redemption, we are delivered into the Kingdom and invited to receive mercy at the throne of God!
Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16
