Hebrews 7 Devotion Sharing – Gracepoint Riverside

Submitted by Eunice Kim, Gracepoint Riverside

Reflect on the fact that Jesus “is able to save completely those who come to God through him” and that “he always lives to intercede” for me.  What perspective does this provide for me in my fight against sin?

It fills me with gratitude once again to think about how Jesus is able to save me completely.  This is a statement of true security – Jesus is able to save completely, he gets the job done and there is nothing lacking for my salvation.  How rare in life is such a statement of absolute security and guarantee, because no one has the power to make such a claim.  Only Jesus can give us the sure promise of complete salvation through his sacrifice on the cross.

The fact that he always lives to intercede for me means that in my struggle with sin, it’s not just up to me.  I have Jesus interceding for me, my perfect savior is there on my side, interceding for me.  Therefore, I don’t need to fall into despair, and it also means that self-pity or giving up can’t be justified.  So, I need to press on to live Christian life and struggle against my strongholds and sins – that’s the least I can do, as my Savior offered himself for me and completely fulfilled my need for salvation.  To give up, to have an attitude of complaint/self-pity, to despair – it’s really to misunderstand and not properly value what Jesus has done for me.  It’s to mock what he’s done, to say that it’s not enough.

Who is Jesus to me?  How has he met my need?

Jesus is the one who offered himself as a sacrifice to take the place and cover over all my sins.  He did this even before I understood who He was, and how much of a sinner I am.  He has forever solved the problem of my burden of guilt, and of my searching for security.  He has forever solved my problem of death.  I am reminded that because of what Jesus has done for me, I am really set for eternity.  Even if nothing goes “right” from this point on, even if there are unexpected struggles in my life, or just sources of sadness that weigh me down – Jesus has truly filled my greatest need for an eternal Savior.  All my other “felt” needs seem minor or irrelevant in light of this truth.  I need to meditate on these basic truths of who Jesus is to me so that the daily anxieties and worries that preoccupy me can be quieted, and I can experience the simple humility and gratitude of my salvation once again.
