INTERCESSION CONTINUES

There is a comforting thought that we may take too lightly and not remember often enough. Jesus sits even now by His Father's throne and pleads for us still. This Man of Sorrows, acquainted with grief, who lived among us, taught us, loved us and died for us continues to plead our cause before the Father's throne. Marvelous thought!

And He is admirably able to be our intercessor. After all, He suffered every trial we do: pain, desertion, disloyalty, hatred, physical abuse, mental anguish, soul ache--everything, and in a greater degree than we can imagine. So when He makes intercession for us before the Father's throne, He knows firsthand what He is talking about. He knows what it feels like to hurt, to be alone. Even His own earthly family didn't believe in Him. They thought He was out of His mind. He gave everything He had, and it wasn't enough to win the hearts of people. Most rejected Him, both who He is and what He teaches. But He gave all He had anyway, up to and including praying for forgiveness for the ones who nailed Him to the cross. He knows us inside and out and pleads for us anyway. We would do well to continually remember and appreciate that we have an ongoing Advocate before the Father's throne. It is endlessly comforting.

"Therefore He is able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them." Hebrews 7:25
"For Christ has not entered the holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true, but into heaven itself now to appear in the presence of God for us." Hebrews 9:24
