Now that we know what we have - Jesus, this great High Priest with ready access to God - let's not let it slip through our fingers.
We don't have a priest who is out of touch with our reality. He's been through weakness and testing, experienced it all - all but the sin.
So let's walk right up to him and get what he is so ready to give. Take the mercy, accept the help.
