Christ’s priesthood is the great secret of daily comfort in Christianity.  It is hard to do our duty in that place of life which God has appointed us and not to become absorbed in it.  We are such poor, weak creatures that we cannot do two things at once.  The cares, business, and occupations of life, however innocent and sinless, often seem to drink up all our thoughts and swallow up all our attention.  But, oh, what an unspeakable comfort it is to remember that we have a High Priest in heaven who never forgets us night or day and is continually interceding for us and providing for our safety.  Happy is that man who knows how to begin and end each day with his Priest!  This is, indeed, to live the life of faith. – J. C. Ryle (1816-1900)
