Christ’s intercession for you
December 20, 2011
For Christ has entered, not into holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true things, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God on our behalf.
Every Christmas, the hearts of believers everywhere focus on the birth of Christ. Now, while I love the fact that people are thinking about spiritual things this time of year, the story of the baby Jesus is just a snapshot in God’s story. In fact, it’s only a small portion of the life of Christ altogether.
Jesus grew up, lived a powerful life filled with many miraculous works, died on the cross for you and me, rose again, and ascended to heaven. So you see, we miss a whole lot when all we remember is His birth. And today, as you read these words, Jesus is as alive as ever, seated at the right hand of the Father!
But what is Christ now doing in heaven? Well, according to today’s passage, He is interceding for the faithful. He is in the presence of the Father, at the very throne of God, to speak on our behalf!
If you knew that Jesus Christ was in the next room right now praying for you, would that make a difference in the way you face life each day? Well, the distance makes no difference. He is praying for you right now. And you can face the challenges and the battles of life knowing that He is interceding for you!
CHRIST IS INTERCEDING FOR YOU RIGHT NOW. SO FACE EVERY DAY WITH CONFIDENCE, KNOWING THAT YOU HAVE A POWERFUL ADVOCATE BEFORE THE FATHER.

Stand strong for Christ in the coming year!
Over the past year, I’ve taken on a number of hot-button issues including marriage and divorce, the exclusivity of the Gospel, and the future of America.
So to help you stand strong for Christ in the coming year and give a defense for the hope that’s in you, I want to send you what I believe are my most important messages from 2011 together in one series called The Best of 2011.
In these 10 thought-provoking messages, I’ll show you how the Bible answers questions like, “How can I have a great family life?”, “Is there any other way but Jesus?”, and “What’s going to happen to our country in the coming years?”
The Best of 2011is my gift to thank you for your donation to PowerPoint this month. It’s my prayer that it would help you make and keep your new year’s resolution to grow closer with your Heavenly Father.
Thank you for your faithful gift. I’m grateful!
