Because Jesus lives forever, he has a permanent priesthood. Therefore, he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them. Such a high priest truly meets our need—one who is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted above the heavens. Heb. 7:24-26
Lord Jesus, because you live forever… your banner over us is love, your desire for us is constant, and your delight in us is endless. Hallelujah! We are citizens of heaven and Abba’s beloved children—fully forgiven and robed in your righteousness.
Because you live forever… we don’t have to live this last week of January 2021 in nagging fear, under great stress, with wavering hope. Why? Because your tomb is empty, your throne is occupied, and your return is certain.
Because you live forever… your prayers for us are perfect, and your presence with us is constant. Though Satan tempts, condemns, and lies to us—your love is greater still, your grace more than sufficient, and your truth will win the Day.
Because you live forever… you will finish making all things new, the earth will be filled with God’s glory, and your Bride will enjoy eternal life to the fullest.
Because you live forever, if we draw our last breath today, we will draw our first breath in heaven. Thank you, Lord Jesus, thank you so very much. So very Amen we pray, in your righteous, reigning, and righting name.
