Jesus operates as the high priest for the believer today.

A gloriously profound scripture-based ideology that unfolds through God’s infallible Word is mankind’s redemption through the sacrifice of Jesus on the Cross.
He literally laid down his life to save human beings from the unchanging fate of annihilation that awaits on the Day of Judgment–anyone who believes has escaped this doomsday (John 3:16-17). It’s the greatest miracle ever!
God planned all that on his own volition, making the matter almost incredible! It seems unbelievable that the singular motive in the heart of God his love. There was only one string attached to this grace-draping kindness: Love.

The matter gets even sweeter when we realized the High Priest position of Christ, standing in service in the heavenly sanctuary for those who have believed in Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
He serves all those who come to God in him as High Priest forever! It’s like the job of a waiter who eagerly attends to people in a restaurant—he supplies their needs!
Believers in Christ have been unequivocally assure that not only have their sins been forgiven on the Cross, but Christ, standing in the position of High Priest in heaven continually entreats the Father currently on their behalf when they mess up in sin or when in need or in trouble (1 Jn. 1:9; Matt. 11:28-30). It doesn’t mean God condones sin. On the contrary, he sent Jesus to destroy the works of the devil, which includes sin (Jn. 10:10; Acts 10:38).

Christ became our perfect High Priest. He became human and lived in the world (Jn. 1: 14). Fully Man, he was tempted in every way—yet without sin (Heb. 4:15.)
To qualify as our High Priest, he had to be made perfect through his sufferings. Surely, it doesn’t mean Jesus was imperfect. No! Perfection connotes “flawlessness” and “wholeness.” Without question, Jesus was flawless and whole. The sufferings he experienced, which culminated on the Cross, made him our perfect High Priest. He experienced all the struggles associated within humanity.

Today, Christ is our loving and experienced High Priest. He intercedes, mediates, and advocates with the Father on our behalf (Heb. 9:25; 9:24).
We can boldly come to the Father’s presence without fear of condemnation (Heb. 4:16). There is no fear in love (Jn. 3:16; 1 Jn. 4:18). Christ has got us covered. In faith, there’s forgiveness when we sin (1 Jn. 1:9), and our needs supplied. 🙌 Hallelujah
