Passage: Hebrews 4:14–4:16
Title: Why Pray?
Text: Hebrews 4:14-16
- Confidently approaching God’s throne is a command, not a suggestion.
Reasons why Jesus is the Great High Priest:
- Jesus is alive today
- Jesus is in the presence of God
- Jesus is the Son of God
- Jesus sympathizes with us
“Only those who try to resist temptation know how strong it is… A man who gives into temptation after five minutes simply does not know what it would have been like an hour later… Christ, because He was the only man who never yielded to temptation, is also the only man who knows to the full extent what temptation means." - C.S. Lewis
- Because Jesus is our Great High Priest, we can confidently approach God’s throne through prayer to receive mercy and help in our time of need.
