September 28, 2021 – Hebrews 5-10

The writer of Hebrews, in describing a human high priest, notes that “he can deal gently with the ignorant and wayward, since he himself is beset with weakness” (5:3). But we now have a compassionate High Priest, who is without weakness. By his blood, we have a “new and living way that he opened for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh” (10:19), and now we can “draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water” (10:22).


To be able, freely, to draw near to God! To be able to do so with our consciences cleansed! To talk to the Creator of the universe anytime we wish to! And all because of our great High Priest, Jesus! Today, let’s not fail to take advantage of so great a privilege and go to God!


Oh, the pure delight of a single hour

That before Thy throne I spend,

When I kneel in prayer, and with Thee, my God,

I commune as friend with friend!

Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,

To the cross where Thou hast died;

Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,

To Thy precious, bleeding side. –Fanny Crosby (1875)
