Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 04/18/10

This week’s scripture is from Romans:

“It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.”                        (Romans 8:34)

Let us remember that Christ not only died for us and is risen, but He sits at the right hand of the Father making intercession for us. Jesus is our Lord and savior, but also our advocate. When we give thanks, when we petition, when we pray for help, it is the Son of the Most High who intercedes for us with God Almighty. We are not left as orphans, defenseless before the enemy and the world, but He takes up our cause and comes to our aid. Call on Him and praise His name.

May the blessings of the Lord Jesus Christ be yours this day as you praise and worship Him.
