With Jesus doing the blocking .... You will score a touchdown every time!

Updated on June 3, 2017

He intercedes on our behalf.

It is Super Bowl time and as a big NFL fan I always get excited for the big game. This year is Super Bowl 50 by the way. While we often give a lot of credit to the skilled positions such as quarterback, running back, wide receiver and tight end. They are the ones after all scoring the touchdowns. They could not score the touchdowns without the offensive line blocking and protecting them. This leads me to think of the greatest blocker of all time, the one and only Jesus Christ. He intercedes on our behalf. He paves the way to ultimate glory. With Him doing the blocking we will score a touchdown all the time every time. That is the way that He loves us.

He takes the obstacle of our sin away from us and gives us a path to eternal glory. So let Him do the blocking and intercede on your behalf. What could be better than that? Everlasting glory awaits you in Heaven and a peace and joy that is well beyond our belief and comprehension. You may think your sin will keep you from Heaven but certainly not when Jesus is doing the blocking. You need only repent and believe and your faith will save you no matter what the sin may be for indeed nothing can keep you from the love of God. It is awesome.

Intercession is defined as the action of intervening on behalf of another. This is what the Lord Jesus does for us. He would like it that none should perish. Remember in John 3 when He says He was sent on our behalf not to condemn the world but that through Him the world might be saved. So He has done the blocking and He has provided on your behalf. The rest is up to you. Will you accept His tremendous gift? If you accept it you will score that touchdown each and every time and you will win that battle for your soul for all eternity. God loves you so so much. Never ever lose sight of just how much. Here are some bible verses on intercession:

Hebrews 7:25 Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.

John 19:30 So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, "It is finished!" And bowing His head He gave up His spirit.

Romans 5:10 For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.

Romans 8:34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, Who also makes intercession for us.

2 Corinthians 5:21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

1 Timothy 2:5 For their is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time, for which I was appointed a preacher and an apostle.

1 John 2:1 My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.

God bless always. Touchdown!
