Description:

One of the beautiful pictures in the Bible is that of the Lord Jesus Christ as our great High Priest. Priests represent people before God – they stand in the place of the people. Did you know that Christ does that? Because He is sinless, He can come before God and plead for us. He does not need a sacrifice for His own sins. He had none. Instead, He has become a great sacrifice Himself. He presented Himself to God in our place and became a substitute for us, dying in our place on Calvary’s cross. We don’t need an earthly priest to bring us to God – we just need Christ!
