Hebrews Study – lesson 4 “Building on the Foundation” – Hebrews 4:14 – 6:12
“Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let
us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize
with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did
not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy
and find grace to help us in our time of need.” Hebrews 4:14-16
Heaven is open. We have a great high priest who has passed beyond the veil, and His name is Jesus.
Heaven is open. There is no more barrier between us and glory. When we face troubling times, when it
feels like every door has been slammed in our face, remember, that heaven is open. There is no path to
dig, there is no door to kick down. Jesus has ascended into heaven: he made a path and opened the
door, and gave us full access to God’s presence.
