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.Hebrews 7:25
Throughout His ministry, Jesus modeled His commitment to prayer. He didn’t just tell His followers to pray, he lived and practiced what he preached. Again and again, the Gospels tell us how Jesus prayed all night in a secluded place –
And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate place, and there he prayed.Mark 1:35
“He would withdraw to desolate places and pray.”Luke 5:16
Jesus prays for us today.
The verse above from Hebrews tells us not only of His power to save but reminds us that Jesus “always lives to make intercession for them.” The word intercede means to “intervene on behalf of another.”
1 Timothy 2:5 reminds us of this –
“For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.”
And as our only mediator, Jesus continues to pray, He prays on our behalf. He cares about our needs and He is doing that right now. Always.
