Getting to Work

It’s time to get to work. What a great thought! What a great opportunity! It is great to know that Jesus is still working. Hebrews 7:25 tells us “he is able to save to the uttermost them that draw near unto God through him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.”

“The eternally unchanging, high-priestly, and royal sway of the glorified Son of Man, is the cause of our perfect salvation, in that, by means of this, we, reconciled, draw near to God, and are kept in perpetual fellowship of life with God.”(John Peter Lange et al., A Commentary on the Holy Scriptures: Hebrews (Bellingham, WA: Logos Bible Software, 2008), 137).

In Romans 8:34 Paul said, “Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died–more than that, who was raised–who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.” Hebrews 9:24 tells us, “For Christ has entered, not into holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true things, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God on our behalf.”

1 Timothy 1:15 records again the ancient and continued hope–“Faithful is the saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.” Christian, we must be thankful that the work of Jesus to save mankind began at Calvary and continues at the right hand of God today! How amazing is God’s grace!
