SERMON OUTLINE:

Three Questions:

Question one: Who is this Great high priest?

Question Two: What does this high priest have to offer?

Question Three: Why does He qualify?

SERMON BODY:

Ill:

• Readers’ Digest Magazine contains the story;

• Of an employee who confided in a co-worker.

• Quote: ‘I told her about a problem in our office and my fear that I would lose my job.

• She was concerned and said she would pray for me.

• I know she keeps a list of 10 people she believes need her prayers the most,

• So I asked her if she had room for me on her list.

• “Oh yes,” she replied.

• “Three of the other people have died”’

• I guess if we ask somebody to intercedes for us,

• We are expecting and wanting better results than that!

• The book of Hebrews reassures us again and again;

• That we have the best intercessor anyone could hope to have.

Note: There are two reasons every Christian should be confident in their priest Jesus.

FIRST: WE HAVE A PRIEST WHO IS AVAILABLE,

• Quote: Hebrews chapter 7 verse 25.

• Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him,

• Because he always lives to intercede for them”.

Ill:

• Do you remember the old batman series?

• The one that starred Adam West as Bruce Wayne?

• When Commissioner Gordon needed Batman’s help;

• He would pick up a special red telephone and be instantly connected to the bat-cave,

• Where batman would get the message and be available to help.

• It did not matter what time of night or day Commissioner Gordon called;

• If he used that red telephone then he had instant access to Batman!

Transition: You and I come to an eternal living priest who is always available:

• Some people have the mistaken idea that once Jesus finished His work on the cross,

• He went to heaven to retire.

• This verse reminds us that nothing could be farther from the truth.

• ‘He lives to make intercession for us’ (Hebrews chapter 7 verse 25),

• Another example is chapter 9 verse 24:

• ‘He entered heaven itself, now to appear for us in God’s presence’.

• As our high priest, He stands ready to hear our pleas, our petitions, and our pain.

• Quote: “His ear is eager. His heart is empathetic. His hand is extended.”

SECOND: WE HAVE A PRIEST WHO IS ALL-SUFFICENT.

• Quote: Hebrews chapter 7 verse 25.

• Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him,

• Because he always lives to intercede for them”.

We have a priest who is all-sufficient to meet our deepest needs.

• That means no sin is so great:

• That it would turn the head of our high priest away from us.

• No sins are so numerous;

• That they could bar the entrance to into his listening ear.

• ill: In fact there is a sense that when we say; “Sorry Lord I did it again!”
