“To this end we always pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling and may fulfill every resolve for good and every work of faith by his power, so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.” (2 Thess. 1:11-12)

Take a moment to pray the above for some people the Lord brings to your mind.

Jesus Lives to Intercede

This morning I was reading in Hebrews 7. “Consequently, 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” (Heb. 7:25).

Jesus understands our weakness (from the context of Heb. 7) and is fully aware of our need for an intermediary between God and man. He is that intermediary!

In this context there is hope – HE is able … since HE always lives to make intercession for us. What assurance this is. What comfort to know right now HE is interceding for me, for us.

Take a moment to praise Him and thank Him for His amazing grace, mercy and kindness.
