To Save To The Uttermost
What is Jesus up to?
He came, He lived among us, He died for our sins, He rose from the dead.
The book of Hebrews points the reader back to the Old Testament. More specifically to the sanctuary service. I won't get into it at this time but if you are looking for a fascinating study, study the sanctuary and how it teaches us about God's plan of salvation. The sanctuary teaches us about Jesus.
Paul mentions in Hebrews a sanctuary not made by men but rather by God (Hebrews 8:1-2). Paul places Jesus there interceding for us.
The better we understand the services of the earthly sanctuary, the better we can understand what Jesus is currently doing for us in the heavenly sanctuary.
For the sake of brevity I will focus on just one thing that Jesus is currently doing for us in heaven.
What an amazing truth to keep in our hearts and share with others. Jesus is able to save us completely! Jesus is alive and He always lives to make intercession for us. We can come to God through Jesus! Jesus is alive and interceding for us. We have no merits to come before God, but because of Jesus' ministry we can come to God through Him!
Please, never allow anything on this earth to keep you from coming to God though Jesus to receive your salvation. Jesus is able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him.
He died for you.
And now He lives to intercede for you!
Jesus' birth on earth as a human being, His life, death, and resurrection were incredibly important.
But so is the fact that right now He is interceding for us.
You don't bother Him when you pray. He lives to intercede for you. He died for you.
Pray, talk to God.
Come to God through Jesus.
And receive your complete salvation!
