Thus it was that when he saw his younger brother, all was well for the rest of the family. Benjamin’s presence made all the difference. Because of him, the very best of provisions were left at their disposal, and the highest hospitality that Egypt could afford was set before them. Despite the fact that they had offended and had grievously sinned against the high and mighty governor of the palace, all was well because Benjamin was with them.
How like our reception before the King of kings. We have sinned against the God of heaven. Yet if we approach Him accompanied by the greater Benjamin, the Lord Jesus, all is well. Down here upon this scene of time we can enter with confidence and boldness into His holy presence because our supplications are offered in that name that is above all others. Best of all, one day, when we enter into His immediate presence and stand before the One whose name is holy, all will be well because alongside of us will be our glorious Surety and blessed Redeemer, the Lamb of God Himself-the greater Benjamin.
