JESUS CHRIST THE RIGHTEOUS



We all give way to fear at times.... chronic illness in ourselves or those we love tends to do that... but it does give me great comfort to know that we have Jesus Christ the righteous interceding on our behalf...
I fear possible heart surgery and the probability that I may not grow to be old bones, and when I dwell on that, it can consume me with fear... and it is then that I make myself consider Whose I am and Who holds me in His Hand...
With many trials for myself and the illness almost unto death of my youngest daughter with leukaemia 2 years ago, I can testify that God made His Presence known in a tangible way... and when I was too emotionally spent to pray at my daughter's sick bed in ICU, His Holy Spirit was not only hovering around me but inside me... the peace that passed all human understanding was very, very real..

Jesus is our High Priest. We do not need an intermediary nor do we need to pray to Saints... we have a High Priest with our best interest in His loving Heart, praying to our Father- His Father, for us...
Let's keep that in mind when we fall into fear... Jesus Christ the righteous is always there, and perfect love casts out fear ....

My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. 1 John 2:1
Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.' Isaiah 41:10

  1. Lovely, yes I pray to Jesus. The bible states in more than a few verses he is our High Priest. Thanks for sharing.
