We are represented at the right hand of God by the Priest, and the Priest loves us. We could hardly say that Aaron loved the people. He interceded for them, and bore the names of the tribes on his shoulders and on his breast. But our High Priest loves us, and supports us as long as we are on earth, and nothing can separate us from His love. It is wonderful to think that He knows us individually. Aaron had the names of the tribes on his shoulders, but the Lord says He knows His own sheep by name; John 10: 3. He spoke to Mary by name; He knew her individually; she was a sheep. And so in regard to us, He knows us and intercedes for us.
