He Who is within you is GREATER than he who is in this world, Amen.f

We must cling in faith to all we know to be true. For we have a magnificent King-Priest, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who rose into the heavenly realm for us, and now sympathizes with us in our frailty. He understands humanity, for as a Man, our magnificent King-Priest was tempted in every way just as we are, and conquered sin. So now we come freely and boldly to where Love is enthroned, to receive Mercy’s Kiss and discover the grace we urgently need to strengthen us in our time of weakness. Hebrews 4:14-16 (TPT)

In Old Testament times, the High Priest was largely disconnected from the people. It wasn’t because he was some sort of self-righteous, distant figure. Instead, it’s because his responsibilities kept him in the temple at all times. He was there to mediate between God’s people and God Himself. Once a year, every household in Israel would bring a sacrifice into the temple and turn it over to the High Priest. He would follow God’s ordinance for sacrificing the animal in order to atone for the sin of each household. He didn’t have time to spend a great deal of time with the people seeing their struggles. Additionally, Kings don’t spend a great deal of time with “commoners.” In the same way that our President doesn’t spend a lot of time eating dinner at the house of American citizens, Kings didn’t go to the home of each person and find out how they were doing. They were busy leading the nation.
