1 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly
calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our
profession, Christ Jesus;
For reasons already discussed about Christ, then, my
fellow saints, who are sharers of the Heavenly glory
to come, consider the apostle and High Priest of our
profession, Christ Jesus.
CONSIDER CHRIST. Reflect upon and understand Him.
Perceive Him strongly, fix your mind and focus upon
This is the great omission of most of professing
Christianity today. We are so self-focused, we are so
introspect, so concerned about our own flesh and
perceived needs (which are usually wants) that we have
little or no time to focus on Christ. Just listen to
the things that are being said about Him in Christian
circles and compare them to the bible. By doing that
it is absolutely clear that most professing Christians
know nothing of who Jesus is. I hear with careful
perception and I notice not only that things that are
said about Him which are either distorted or have
nothing to do with the scriptures, or worse than that,
the many things that are left out of our speech and
understanding concerning who He is. How man Christians
knew that Jesus was called an apostle? How many people
have passed over the pages of the Old Testament,
finding it boring and stale, yet the ministry of the
High Priest, which the writer of Hebrews calls Christ
to be the greatest of, we are ignorant of.

my sin, participates in my sin, whose bloody sacrifice
allows me to participate in abominable behavior under
the guise of grace.
This Jesus has little or no power, which is clearly
indicated by the lifestyles of those who profess to
This Jesus also seems to be very much a racist,
tolerating different types of bigotry, under the guise
of culture and status.
