Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
Now this is the main point of the things we are saying: We have such a High Priest, who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens, a Minister of the sanctuary and of the true tabernacle which the Lord erected, and not man. – Heb. 8:1-2

Do not look to man. Look to Jesus!

Man will die; but Jesus lives forever.

Man will fail; but Jesus is faithfully victorious!

Man will lie and disappoint you; but God is not a man that He should lie (Num. 23:19). He is faithful until the end!

A priest is a man who stands between you and God. But Jesus is your High Priest who not only mediates, but also invites you into God’s very presence! You don’t need a priest. You need Jesus. You don’t need a man! You need God Himself. Go to God for yourself, and He will receive you with open arms.


Father, thank You for direct access to Your throne. You inhabit the Heavens! Yet somehow You saw fit to make a way for me to meet You face to face. I am so grateful, in Jesus’ name!
