It is finished–have a seat!

In the Old Testament, priests entered the temple with the strictest of rules and reverence, and never would they casually “sit” in the temple.  There was a fearful respect of the Temple.  Jesus, after His work on the cross, ascended to heaven and SITS at the right hand side of God.  Dr. Jeremiah described this “sitting” as “It is finished” !  Jesus comfortably sits and intercedes for us.

After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God. Mark 16:19

“…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” (Romans 8:34)

Dear friends with boldness we can approach the throne of God because of the work of Jesus.

So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.  Hebrews 4:16

Close your eyes and look up to God–there seated slightly to the right is our Savior.  Always with us, always there, and interceding for us.
