Consider The Apostle and High Priest

“Consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus (Heb. 3:1). The word “apostle” means a sent one. “The Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world” (1 Jn. 4:14), and in so doing sent the most impressive unforgettable character of all history to represent Him.

The fact of the nature of the One by whom Christ was sent into the world should suffice for our giving Him a ready welcome and a great reception. The Father is “the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness” (Jas. 1:17); “the Father of spirits,” who chastens those He loves (Heb. 12:9); “the Father of mercies,” who comforts those in trial (2 Cor. 1:3); and “the Father of glory” (Eph. 1:17), who calls us to glory and virtue (2 Pet. 1:3).

In addition to Christ being the expression of the One who sent Him, He has a very important errand; so that when we consider the motive of His mission, the manifesto of His ministry and the message of His mediation by means of which we have access to the Father, we should most certainly welcome Him with gladness and gratitude.”

Do You Need Someone Safe To Talk With?

Josh and Naci, at “Safetime,” are two of the safest people I know!!! I know this because I spend time with them each month myself, as does Connie’s House, who introduced me to SafeTime.

They may not have experienced the same life circumstances that you have faced, but they have experienced great pain individually, and as a couple. Their shared life experiences have equipped them to listen, emphasize, and offer a caring heart when you need to talk about painful experiences that are causing emotional turmoil in your life.

Their understanding of deep emotional pain is the reason they created “Safetime,” which is a ministry that provides a safe place where you, from anywhere around the world, can spend 45 minutes talking with them about the things you need to talk about.

Due to family circumstances, Josh and Naci are currently unavailable for Safe Time calls. I will share an update about the presence of Safe Time as it becomes available.

The Lord Your God Is Mighty To Save

“’The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing’” (Zeph. 3:17).

“’The Lord Your God is in the midst of you, a mighty One, a Savior—who saves! He will rejoice over you with joy. He will rest in silent satisfaction… He will exult over you with singing’” (Amplified).

“Your Father’s heart longs for you. Be blessed as you receive His embrace. He loves you in the way you were created to be loved. He has come to overwhelm you with His love. He takes great delight in you. The prayer of Jesus was ‘Father, let them know deep inside that as You love Me, so You love them, they in Me and I in You’ (John 17:21,26 paraphrased). God loves you as much as He loves His Son. His love for you is way beyond anything you can imagine.

“Rest in His presence and let His peace quiet your mind. Let His love calm your heart. He is for you. God is mighty to save. He will fight your battles for you. He has said to you, ‘You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the Lord will give you (2 Chron. 20:17).'”

“Your Father smiles at you today. God likes you — today, every day, every moment. Hear Him rejoicing over you with singing. Let His love be the foundation of your life. You are beloved in the complete finished work of Jesus. God delights in showing you His love.”

“Let go of the past, as you face the future with your Father. Be blessed with joy, peace, and rest in Him. Be blessed with refreshing and renewal in His presence, as you pursue the fulfillment that He has created for you. Be blessed as He gives you victory and rejoices over you.”

Consider Jesus Bringing You To Your Heavenly Father

“Consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus (Heb. 3:1). The word ‘apostle’ means a sent one. ‘The Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world’ (1 Jn. 4:14), and in so doing sent the most impressive unforgettable character of all history to represent Him.

The Father is ‘the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness’ (Jas. 1:17); ‘the Father of spirits,’ who chastens those He loves (Heb. 12:9); ‘the Father of mercies,’ who comforts those in trial (2 Cor. 1:3); and ‘the Father of glory’ (Eph. 1:17), who calls us to glory and virtue (2 Pet. 1:3). In addition to Christ being the expression of the One who sent Him, He has a very important errand; so that when we consider the motive of His mission, the manifesto of His ministry and the message of His mediation by means of which we have access to the Father, we should most certainly welcome Him with gladness and gratitude.(A)”

Consider that Father sent Jesus to be your High Priest.

Consider that Father sent Jesus to save you.

Consider that Father sent Jesus, the most impressive unforgettable character

of all history to represent Him.

Consider giving Jesus ready welcome and a great reception.

Consider that Jesus is the exact expression of the Father;

         The unvarying Light of the world.

         Who chastens you because He loves you.

         Who comforts you when you go through trials.

         Who calls you to glory and virtue.

Consider the motive of Jesus mission.

Consider the manifesto of Jesus ministry.

Consider the message of Jesus mediation.

Consider that Jesus is your only way to the Father.

Consider welcoming Jesus with gladness and gratitude.

In your consideration imagine Jesus meeting you face to face saying, “Our Heavenly Father asked me to bring you to him, will you come with me?”

Consider going with Jesus, walking through the courts of heaven into the The Throne Room. Consider watching Father jump off the throne and run toward you with open arms and a huge joyous smile on his face. Experience Father embracing you, how strong and gentle he is, how wonderful he smells and how loved you feel. Listen to the Host of Heaven rejoicing. Walk with Father back to his throne and jump into his lap after he sits down. Notice the joy Jesus is experiencing as he sits down with you and Father. You are home. The longer you enjoy their presence the more you notice that their lap is big enough for every human to be loved and embraced individually and as a family together. It is amazing, absolutely amazing. Being with Father, Son and filled with Holy Spirit is exceedingly abundantly beyond what you could ever ask for or imagine.

You have entered His rest, relax and enjoy.
