A High Priest Who Knows Us

Encouragement to go directly to God in prayer, without wavering:

This means we can be assured that we pray to and hope in a High Priest who knows us.  He sympathizes with us.  He has a friendly, personal understanding of our weaknesses.  He says to us, "I've been there," and he actually means it.  John Frame writes, "God, who has no body, has taken to himself a body in the person of Jesus Christ.  God, who cannot suffer, has taken to himself a human nature, in which he can suffer, in Christ." Joshua Harris, Dug Down Deep.
