Read this today:
. . . he holds his priesthood permanently, because he continues forever. Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them.
Hope for stubborn sinners! God has been pulling back the veil this week, specifically on my pride. It is painful cleansing. But no matter how deep I peer into the depths of my sin, my High Priest's intercessions are ever lower.
