Jesus is our Saviour and Intercessor

March 12th, 2016

“Therefore he is able, once and forever, to save those who come to God through him. He lives forever to intercede with God on their behalf.”
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭7:25‬ ‭NLT‬‬

This verse is speaking about Jesus and two of His major roles. The first is His ability to save us completely for all eternity. He is the only one throughout history who has had the power to bring us salvation. His did this through His death on the cross for us. John 14:6 tells us that Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except by Him. Jesus is the way, the only way to salvation. The second part is the role of Jesus as intercessor Priest. The Bible tells us that Jesus constantly intercedes for us before the Father. That means He is pleading our case just like a lawyer who intervenes before a judge. Jesus is for us and is on our side. He is our Saviour who died for us and our intercessor who pleads on our behalf.

Prayer

Lord I thank You that You are the only way to salvation. I thank You that I know that I am saved because of what You have done. I also thank You that you are constantly interceding for me before the Father. It gives me great peace and comfort to know that I am saved and that You are on my side. Amen.
