God the Son walked the earth and shared our struggles. A real man, Jesus Christ, one of our own kind, will reign over the entire universe forever because He is also truly God. He invites us to reign with him.
A priest in the Bible is a go-between, mediator, intercessor, or a liaison – someone to stand between people and God. The Bible says we need someone like this because unholy people cannot stand before a perfectly holy God on their own merit. Jesus is the perfect Man for the job.
In the midst of our deepest troubles, it’s understandable to think that God is distant. Understandable, but wrong. God is not far away. He has done literally everything to bridge the gap between the human race and Himself. There is no longer any need for distance between you and the God who loves you. Jesus – God the Son – crossed over to our side to lead us back over to His side. That’s just one reason the Lord Jesus Christ is exactly the Savior that we need.
