Good morning!

Text:  Hebrews 7  (Nehemiah 3-4)

Here is a wonderful truth about our Lord Jesus:

…he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them.  (Hebrews 7:25)

What an idea!  At this very moment, our Jesus is alive and seated at the right hand of the Father.  That places Jesus in the seat of favor, power and authority.  And Jesus is making “intercession” for you and for me.  Imagine Him, right now, saying, “Father, have you considered my brother/sister (fill in your name here)?  I ask your favor, your blessing, your mercy, your abundance… for him/her.   And I ask this as your perfect Son.”  Wow!  Next time you feel lonely or forlorn, downcast or afraid, know that Jesus is working on your behalf.  “Always”, just as it says.

in Him, Mike
