Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

A priest is a go-between, one who intercedes between two different parties, in this case, between we humans and God.

For this reason he had to be made like this brothers and sisters in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people.

- Hebrews 2:17 TNIV

Hebrews tells us that Jesus is the perfect priest:
--In every way he is just like you and me, fully human.
--Yet also one in full communion with God.
--One who in himself can put us right with God by his sacrifice/atonement for us.
--And he shows mercy to us.

This is not a priest of whom to be afraid, to flee, but to run to!
