Light for My Path Daily Devotion
Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrews 4:14-16 ESV)
Hymn ELH 270:1-2 Hail, Thou Once-Despised Jesus
Hail, Thou once despised Jesus!
Hail, Thou Galilean King!
Thou didst suffered to release us,
Thou didst free salvation bring.
Hail, Thou universal Savior,
Who hast borne our sin and shame;
By whose merits we find favor;
Life is given through Thy name.
Paschal Lamb, by God appointed,
All our sins on Thee were laid;
By almighty love anointed,
Thou hast full atonement made.
Every sin may be forgiven
Through the virtue of Thy blood;
Open is the gate of heaven;
Peace is made ‘twixt man and God.
Jesus, my Savior, You understand my temptations and my struggles, because You were tempted like me. Help me to overcome temptations to sin and strengthen my faith in You. Amen.
