Jesus Will Stand Up for You - February 23, 2022

Ever had anyone stand up for you? The answer is yes. Jesus stands at this very moment, offering intercession on your behalf. “Grant Mary the strength to face this interview!” “Issue to Tom the wisdom to be a good father!”

“Where is Jesus?” the bedridden, enfeebled, impoverished, overstressed, and isolated ask. Where is he? He is in the presence of God, praying for us. Jesus prayed for Peter, he stood up for Stephen, and he promises to pray and stand up for you. “Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them” (Hebrews 7:25). Jesus is the sinless and perfect high priest. And when he speaks, all of heaven listens.
