Hebrews 7:23-27
Louis Tamburro
There’s peace for your life in the daily intercession of Christ. There’s so much peace for your life, your relationships, your career, your identity, your insecurities, your guilt, your life and eternal life, in the daily intercession of Christ. Life’s too hard to go at it alone, and heaven’s too pure for you to enter on your merits alone. You can try being your own attorney, advocate, intercessor, but eventually something will come your way that’ll break you in life, and your sins will prevent you from enjoying heaven in eternal life. You need a better attorney, a better advocate, a better intercessor for your life. Jesus is that better intercessor. So unwarp the gift of his intercession today by putting your faith in him and trusting he’s interceding for you. Trust he’s interceding for you, he’s praying for you at this very moment.
As theologian Louis Berkhof states, “It’s a consoling thought that Christ is praying for us, even when we’re negligent in our prayer life...That he’s presenting to the Father the spiritual needs which aren’t present in our minds, and often neglect to include in our prayers...That he prays for our protection against dangers we aren’t even conscious of, and against enemies that threaten us...He’s praying that our faith won’t cease, and that we’ll come out victorious in the end.” Let’s join Jesus in prayer this morning, seeking his daily intercession for our lives.
