Knowing God - Hebrews 7:25

(from Pastor)

[Christ] always lives
to make intercession for ...
those who draw near to God
through him ...
Hebrews 7:25
 
If you had to sum up the entire purpose of your life in a word or short phrase, what would it be?
 
In today’s verse, scripture defines Jesus’ purpose as "always liv[ing] to make intercession for [you]."
 
Intercession is, of course, "prayer for another." Therefore, let this simple truth sink into your heart: Jesus’ purpose and passion is to pray for you. Indeed, primary reason he lives is to pray.
 
+ Whatever you’re passionate about, Jesus is praying for you.
+ Whatever you need most desperately, Jesus is praying for you.
+ Whatever you’re worried about, Jesus is praying for you.
+ Whatever sin and bondage from which you wish to escape, Jesus is praying for you.
+ Those whom you’re concerned about, Jesus is praying alongside of you.
 
Jesus is God. And as the Son – once sent to earth – his role is come alongside of you and me, and understanding our human predicament, he constantly takes our deepest concerns to His Father and your Father in prayer.
 
In Christ’s Love,
a guy who needs lots of prayer
... and has a "brother" to always pray with
