“For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:15-16).

Jesus took the cup of suffering. He didn’t want to, but praise God He did! And He sits at the right hand of our Father in heaven, and we can boldly approach the throne of grace for mercy and grace to help in this time of need. Let’s do it!
