Greatest of all time

"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." Hebrews 4:16.

Society today pays attention to things that are great. When the State of Origin is on, we want to see who will come out on top to be the greatest? NSW or Queensland? When the Australian Open is on, we want to see if Federer or Nadal will be the greatest?

In Hebrews 4:14-5:10, we read about Jesus being the Greatest High Priest. From the passage, we understand that Jesus fulfils the Old Testament priesthood, and this changes everything for believers. Because of who Jesus is and what he’s done, we’re granted a new reality in God’s family. We’re given this encouragement: "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." Hebrews 4:16. How Great is Jesus! How can we be Great for Him?
