National Day of Prayer – On this National Day of Prayer be reminded to pray in praise to Christ who intercedes in Heaven on behalf of the all the redeemed.
Romans 8:34 Who then will condemn us? No one–for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us, and he is sitting in the place of honor at God’s right hand, interceding for us.
Jesus sits at the right hand of the Father, making intercession for us. This is done personally by Christ, as He presents His sacrifice before the Father on our behalf in Heaven’s court. Standing in the gap between God and man, our Lord offers up the prayers and praises of us—His people. He declares in Heaven that all blessings should be bestowed upon us, and that the benefits of His death be applied for the remission of our sins. The remission of sins by Christ’s sacrifice is the design of God the Father that we might be restored into fellowship with our Creator. The intercession of Christ is ever-present and ongoing – it always continues. It is ever prevalent, and has eternal considerable influence, securing our soul from eternal condemnation.
Hebrews 4:14 So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace – what a wonderful, glorious, beautiful expression. A throne of grace is designed to represent a sovereign king seated to dispense mercy and pardon to His people. We are that people. God is seated on a throne of mercy and grace. Jesus is our High Priest having presented the ultimate sacrifice shedding his own blood for our atonement. He presents that sacrifice before God pleading for the pardon of His people, presenting us to a God who is willing to show us mercy as a result of Calvary. He comes with the merits of a sacrifice sufficient for every one of us, and pleads for our salvation. Understanding this, the power of His resurrection and the authority secured by His grace, we may, therefore, come with boldness and look for, and receive pardon. We stand before God represented not of our own merits, but we stand before God where a sufficient sacrifice has been offered for human sin; and in that divine place we are assured that God is merciful. We may, therefore, come without hesitancy, or trembling, and ask for all the mercy that we need. It is freely supplied by the sacrifice of Christ Jesus our Lord.
So today let your prayer be one of praise in thanks that even though we are under the sentence of sin, this was wiped away by Jesus, and secured with His blood. We are restored to the heavenly realms in communion with God by His sacrifice. \o/
