    Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin..therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need

    Thy word have I hidden in my heart that I might not sin against God! Hidden does not mean it's
    not carried and told on the outside,whereas people can not tell whether you are living a lie because the word
    is not exemplified as to how you live!

    This verse shows that the Bible can have a very powerful effect on one's life. It can show the person who they really are in God's eyes and help them to make needed changes in order to please God more fully. We should read the Bible daily.
