All pretensions to approach God in wvorship, without recognizing Christ as our high priest and mediator, is only an exhibition of an infidel farce. It is an insult to God, because a rejection of His Son. Hence those who do not accept Christ as their high priest cut them- selves off from access to the Father. Christ Himself says, "No man cometh unto the Father but by me." Paul makes it a matter of rejoicing that wve have a great high priest who can be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; one that has been tempted in all points like as we are, yet without sin.

The earthly high priest wvent once a year, on the great day of atonement, into the most holy place, with the blood of others, to make atonement for the sins of Israel; but Christ, as the high priest of the good things to come, has entered the holy place on high, with His own blood, to make atonement for the sins of the whole world. The offerings made by the priests under the law pertained only to the cleansing of the flesh; but the blood offered by our high priest "cleanses the conscience from dead works to serve the living God." 25 3
