Dr. Mark Gignilliat – Jesus Prays for Us

Dr. Mark Gignilliat – Jesus Prays for Us

When Jesus raises from the dead and ascends to the right hand of the Father, what is He doing? What is Jesus doing now?

He does not sit idly in heaven. As our raised and ascended Lord, Jesus lives right now, praying and interceding for us, His people.

Hebrews 7:25 tells us: “Therefore He is able to save completely those who come to God through Him, because He always lives to intercede for them.”
