There are some people who always are there for you. We each have people in our lives that are constants. Maybe it’s our family (mother or father), maybe it’s a special friend, maybe it’s a spouse - whoever it is, there are always there for us. These people are willing to do anything for us. They would give us the shirt off their backs. Quite simply, their love for us has no end.
Here the writer of Hebrews reminds us that there is one who has love for us that does not end - Jesus Christ. I love the language here: “he always lives to intercede for them.” This verb is important “always lives.” This is in the perfect tense and shows continuous action that doesn’t end. Christ lived and continues to live at the right hand of the Father to intercede for us to the Father. This is Christ’s life work.
The good news is Jesus Christ. It is only through him that we have our life, our purpose, and our salvation. He doesn’t intercede for us begrudgingly, He does so willingly so that we will be with Him and the Father forever. Let’s live confidently today with this truth in mind.
