Sunday we celebrated the sacrificial death of Jesus and His resurrection from the dead. What more could Our Savior do for us? But think about it. He is still working on our behalf as He sits at the right hand of the Father.
First of all, even though the Son is with the Father in heaven, He is also residing within every believer in the person of the Holy Spirit, whom He sent to be in us and with us. Christ is actively working within to shape our character and empower our obedience.
Next, Jesus lives to intercede for those who believe in Him. He makes requests on our behalf and brings our prayers before the Father.
Then, Jesus is our Advocate when we sin. Positioned between us and holy God, Christ declares our righteous standing because of His sacrifice and our faith in Him.
What’s more, Christ is preparing a place for us in heaven. He is also arranging all the events necessary for His return.
Just as Jesus continues to work to carry on the will of the Father so should we. As part of his Body on earth, we continue in our responsibility to make disciples.
Jesus in alive and active and so should we be.
