Romans 8:34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.

For us, Jesus was whipped, beaten, spat on, and crucified. For us, Jesus died. Because Jesus took our place, the punishment of sin was fulfilled (Isaiah 53:6). One would think that Jesus has done enough, and He can relax on the right side of the Father for eternity. But, He’s not done helping us out.

Jesus is interceding for us. Interceding means to intervene on behalf of another. He hasn’t interceded (past tense) and He didn’t intercede one time. Jesus is interceding (continuously). Every second of every day, Jesus is interceding to the Father on our behalf.

Every sin we commit, He’s letting the Father know His blood paid for that (Eph. 1:7). Although some of our actions are unrighteous, He lets the Father know our belief in His sacrifice makes us righteous (Rom. 3:22). Although we should be punished for some of the things we do, Jesus lets God know He already took the punishment for our foolishness (Rom. 3:24).

This is just another reason to be grateful for Jesus. He’s done so much for us already and He’s still acting on our behalf today. Let’s praise Jesus for what He’s done and what He’s doing right now. Praise Jesus!!!
