Bible Notes

Hebrews 4:14-16 (03.11.17)

Hebrews 4:14-16 NIV
[14] Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. [15] For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathise with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. [16] Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

Jesus knows what we are going through because he has been tempted in every way like us. We can have confidence that he can understand and help us because he knows what it is to be tempted – yet he did not sin! Cry out to him in our time of need and know that he will help and have mercy on us.

Lord, I come, I confess
Bowing here I find my rest
Without You I fall apart
You’re the One that guides my heart
Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defence, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You
(Matt Maher)
