Jesus didn’t only make a sacrifice for our sins, but also for His sins too! Shocking? I know! But just follow me closely so you don’t misunderstand me.
A high priest is chosen by God to represent his people, offering their gifts to God and also SACRIFICES FOR THEIR SINS. He is gentle with ignorant and wayward people because he himself is weak. So he offers sacrifices not just for their sins, but his sins also (Hebrews 5:1-4, 7:27).
Now we have an Eternal High Priest, Jesus Christ, who also understands our weaknesses, because He has faced all the temptations and sufferings we have faced in the flesh, yet He didn’t sin, and He learnt obedience by the things He suffered. So God qualified Him to be a PERFECT High Priest to become the source of our Eternal Salvation (Hebrews 4:14-15, 5:8-9).

When I hear such, all my mind interprets is “my dream is to be very vain, confused and miserable.
First of all, most young people don’t even understand what success is, they measure it with monetary value. That’s why they lack vision. All they want is to make money, to “blow”, to “hammer”, and that’s why most of them end up miserable because they don’t even have a vision to guide them through life. Making money is not a bad thing. Infact, you should be wealthy, but wealth doesn’t define (or measure) success.
