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.”
