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 ESV)
The writer of Hebrews is explaining the benefit of Jesus being a priest of a different order than the OT priests. In this case, one that lives forever. That means that his roll of intercession will never cease. That is good news for us since it means that we will never lose our advocate before God. He will always have our back. His sacrifice will always be enough to satisfy the legal requirement for our sin and so we will always be welcome in God’s sight, no matter our mistakes. You cannot exhaust God’s grace.
It is good to be sorry for your sin, but the Christian should never fear God’s wrath because of the intercessory work of Jesus. Do you ever hesitate when going to God to confess sin?
Give thanks for Jesus’ intercession and confess your sin to God today.
