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 his help.
~Hebrews 4:14-16, The Message~
Photo Backstory: This is a pic of my nephew and niece from a few years back. I loved following behind them as they ran through the woods looking for Autumn treasures. I used online software to give the photo an overexposed look. The quote is from an excellent new book by Mary DeMuth called Everything: What You Give and What You Gain to Become Like Jesus.
