Jesus is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us (Romans 8:34). In the presence of God, in defiance of Satan, Jesus Christ rises to your defense. He takes on the role of a priest. The Book of Hebrews tells us, “Since we have a great priest over God’s house, let us come near to God with a sincere heart and a sure faith, because we have been made free from a guilty conscience” (Hebrews 10:21-22 NCV). A clean conscience. A clean record. A clean heart. Free from accusation. Free from condemnation. Not just for our past mistakes but also for our future ones. “Since he will live forever, he will always be there to remind God that he has paid for our sins with his blood” (Hebrews 7:25 TLB). Christ offers unending intercession on your behalf.
