Jesus Our Mediator

Bro. D.G.S Dhinakaran
12 Nov
The Bible says, “Therefore He is able to save completely those who come to God through Him, because He always lives to intercede for them and such a high priest truly meets our need - one who is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted above the heavens” (Hebrews 7: 25-26). Whenever God has to judge us, Jesus our Advocate is always there to intercede for us, so that He can save us from any form of punishment. Jesus - the High Priest, is compassionate towards us because He has gone through temptations that you and I encounter on a daily basis.

Oliver Cromwell ruled England with an iron hand. Once, when his soldier made a mistake, he ordered to kill him when the bells of St. Mary’s Church rang at 6 pm. The soldier was blindfolded. The firing squad was ready, and Cromwell came to watch. Everybody was waiting for the bells to ring. Time was moving but the bell never rang, and everybody was surprised. Suddenly, a young girl came running to them with blood oozing from her head and hands. She lifted her hands and pleaded for mercy. They came to understand that this young girl was the young soldier's betrothed. When she heard that he was going to be killed, she climbed up to the bell crank and held onto the tongue of the big bell. When a deaf sexton pulled the rope, the rim of the bell hit her again and again, and her hands and head started to bleed. But she kept on holding the rim, as she remembered her fiancé. She showed her blood-soaked hands and head to Cromwell and his heart was moved. He said, “Go, my daughter, your fiancé lives.” 

SCRIPTURE to LIFE

This is what the Lord Jesus does for us. Today, when you sin unknowingly, He pleads for us and weeps before God. When we pray and cry before the Almighty God, Jesus intercedes for us in heaven. Oh! what a wonderful High Priest we have. As long as the high priest lives in heaven, He will not allow God’s judgment to come upon you and destroy you. So, lead a cautious life and a life pleasing in God’s sight.
Prayer:
Loving Heavenly Father, I humbly come before you and seek Your forgiveness for all my transgressions. Thank you, Lord, for pardoning my sins through the intercession of Your beloved Son, Jesus Christ. Grant me Your grace to lead a cautious life, refraining from the evils of the world.

In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen
