Christ’s intercession

Posted: March 20, 2012 by doulos tou Theou in Christianity, Discipleship

“Jesus our High Priest lives for ever as a powerful Intercessor in heaven for believers. The very sight of Christ, our High priest in heaven, prevails exceedingly with God, and turns away his displeasure from us.

It gives sweet relief against the defects still in our sanctification. We want a great deal of faith, love, heavenly-mindedness, mortification, knowledge. Well, if grace be but yet in its weak beginnings, and infancy in thy soul, this may encourage, that by reason of Christ’s intercession, it shall live, grow, and increase itself in thy heart.

He is ever begging new and fresh mercies for you in heaven; and will never cease till all your wants be supplied. ”

— John Flavel
