Before we begin this meditation, I feel like I should make this little disclaimer. This is not exegesis. This is not a full on Bible study. This is just a meditation. And we’re meditating on Hebrews 7:25. Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them.

So we’re not right now going to look at the "once saved always saved" doctrine, and whether that’s a strong doctrine or not. We’re looking at this verse, which says that He, Jesus, as the Great High Priest, is able to save to the uttermost those of us who draw near to Him. He is able to save completely, some other translations say, and he’s living to make intercession.

So I see this as Jesus standing between us and God and constantly saying of us. Yes, I saw that. I saw what they did there. But remember what I did at the cross. That’s paid for. And he is constantly interceding. He is constantly saying to the Father things on our behalf to make sure that we stay in God’s favour.

Jesus is doing that. Jesus himself. For us. So if you’re worried about your salvation today, just think about this, what the Bible says: that Jesus, the best lawyer there will ever be, is talking to God on our behalf, saying, "This person is now your son, God, now your daughter. I died for him, I died for her. Your wrath no longer applies to them.

Isn’t that a beautiful picture of this priest, this lawyer, this brother, this friend, this king, and this God who is standing in the way of God’s wrath upon us. He is saving to the uttermost those of us who draw near to God. He is always interceding for us.

Thank you, Jesus. Thank you, Lord. Thank you for that intercession. We praise you. Amen.
