While studying and preparing for this Sunday's message on Jonah 1:17-2:10, I keep coming back over and over to Hebrews 4:14-16.
Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
There is comfort in knowing that our Lord knows our struggles, knows our pains, knows our situations, and in Him alone we find refuge.
