On this Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) let us remember that we believers in Jesus can approach God’s throne (the Holy of Holies) boldly and in confidence, not in fear, because of what Jesus has done for us. He is greater than Moses or Aaron; Jesus is our merciful and faithful High Priest. Receive His forgiveness and grace today.
“So then, since we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to what we believe. This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.” – Hebrews 4:14-16
