Summary

Are you a “DIY” person? Someone who wants to do things yourself? Sometimes, that’s a great thing. If you need to exchange your water heater, “DIY” saves a lot of money.

However, when it comes to your soul, there is no such thing as “DIY”. As humans, we cannot go to God directly. We need someone to represent us, to vouch for our credibility as a person.

Jesus is that representative. He is our “Great high priest” who represents us in Heaven.

As the Bible says in Hebrews 4:14-16…
14 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven,[a] 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 empathize 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.

Listen to Minister Richard Sutton’s take on Jesus and how is the Great High Priest to all mankind.
