As a Chaplain I get asked lots of questions. Someone recently asked the question “What is Jesus doing now?” We were talking about His return to heaven after He gave the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20) to His followers.
Two things came to mind off the top of my head. I thought I would share them today.
1. He is interceding for us – Romans 8:34 tells us that Jesus is before the Father praying on our behalf. Like a lawyer pleads to the judge for his client, Jesus is pleading and praying for us before the Father. He is our heavenly representative!
2. He is preparing a place for us – John 14:1-3 says that Jesus is preparing a place for us. He tells us that there “are many rooms in His Father’s mansion” and that He is “coming back for us one”. He wants us to be where He is.
So what is Jesus doing now? He is praying for us and preparing the place we will spend eternity. That is great news…..in fact I think that is awesome news!
