Scripture: Hebrews 4:14-16, Jesus the Great High Priest The practical benefit for us in having Jesus as our Great High Priest in Heaven is that Jesus gets it! Jesus knows our weaknesses. Jesus knows our needs. And Jesus totally gets it. Jesus says to us, come on up to the throne of grace and receive all the mercy and grace that you need. In gratitude for the mercy and grace that is ours, we hold firmly to our faith in Jesus and, like Jesus, we extend mercy and grace to others.
