Christ Our Intercessor

1. Our Intercessor has direct access to God.

Romans 8:34 “Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.”

2. Our Intercessor is always on the job.

Hebrews 7:25 “He’s there from now to eternity to save everyone who comes to God through him, always on the job to speak up for them” (The Message).

3. Our Intercessor is our friend.

Job 16:19-21 “Even now my witness is in heaven; my advocate is on high. My intercessor is my friend as my eyes pour out tears to God; on behalf of a man he pleads with God as a man pleads for his friend.”

4. Our Intercessor is acceptable to God.

1 John 2:1 “My children, I am writing this to you so that you should not commit sin. But if anybody does, we have in Jesus Christ one who is acceptable to God and will plead our cause to the Father” (REB).

It is the privilege of every Christian to intercede for others. However, the prayers of God’s people are only made effective because of the Intercessor who presents them to His Father and our Father. Having died a vicarious death for sinners, having lived a perfect life of obedience, having been exalted to the Father’s right hand, Jesus is the believer’s Intercessor with the Father. Hallelujah! What a Savior, what an Intercessor! In the words of Charles Wesley:

He ever lives above
For me to intercede,
His all-redeeming love,
His precious blood to plead.
His blood atoned for all our race,
His blood atoned for all our race,
And sprinkles now the throne of grace.
