Romans 8:34 - Jesus Intercedes for Us.

Romans 8:34 (NKJV) 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.  

Romans 8:34 (NIV) Who then is the one who 
condemns? No one. 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 (NLT) Who then will condemn us? 
No one - for Christ Jesus died for us and was 
raised to life for us, and he is sitting in the 
place of honor at Gods right hand, pleading for 


   Jesus heart of divine love and 
sympathy is drawn out most of all for the one who is 
the most hopelessly entangled in the snares of 
the enemy. With His own blood He has signed the 
emancipation papers of the race.   
   Jesus does not desire those who have been 
purchased at such a cost to become the sport of the 
enemy's temptations. He does not desire us to be 
overcome and perish. He who curbed the lions in their 
den, and walked with His faithful witnesses amid 
the fiery flames, is just as ready to work in 
our behalf to subdue every evil in our nature. 
Today He is standing at the altar of mercy, 
presenting before God the prayers of those who desire 
His help. He turns no weeping, contrite one 
away. Freely will He pardon all who come to Him 
for forgiveness and restoration. He does not 
tell to any all that He might reveal, but He bids 
every trembling soul take courage. Whosoever will, 
may take hold of God's strength, and make peace 
with Him, and He will make peace.   
   The souls that turn to Him for refuge, 
Jesus lifts above the accusing and the strife of 
tongues. No man or evil angel can impeach these 
souls. Christ unites them to His own divine-human 
nature. They stand beside the great Sin Bearer in 
the light proceeding from the throne of God.  
{MH 89-90}  


   Throughout life, there will be times when 
our sins and failures lead us to conclude that 
God is disappointed or angry with us. How can He 
still love me after what I've done? If I'm really 
forgiven, why do I still feel so guilty? At such 
times, we need to fix our eyes on the truth of 
Scripture and ask the questions Paul posed in Romans 
   If God is for us, who is against us (v. 
31)? Our heavenly Father proved His loyalty to us 
when He delivered His own Son over to death in 
order to save us. Without Christ's atoning death 
on our behalf, we would face eternal separation 
from God. 
   Who will bring a charge against God's 
elect (v. 33)? No accusation against us can stand, 
since at the moment of salvation, the Lord 
justified us. This means we were legally declared 
righteous, while still in our sinning condition. No one 
can reverse this transaction and make us guilty 
again. To doubt our blameless standing in Christ is 
to declare His atonement insufficient to cover 
our sin. 
   Who is the one who condemns (v. 34)? 
Although Satan rails against us, Jesus' death and 
resurrection are proof that we are right with God. Christ 
took our condemnation and gave us His 
righteousness in return. Now He sits at the Father's right 
hand, interceding for us. 
   When doubts about the Lord's love and 
faithfulness arise, focus on truth. If we judge His 
loyalty to us by our circumstances or feelings, we 
will never get an accurate view of God. True 
security lies not in our good performance, but in our 
relationship with Christ, and no one can take that from 
us. [In Touch Daily Devotional by Charles 
Stanley at www.intouch.org] 

We must...get into such a living, growing 
relationship with God that our relationship with others 
is maintained through the work of intercession, 
where God works His miracles. Are our lives in the 
proper place so that we may participate in the 
intercession of our Lord and the Holy Spirit? [In His 
Time; My Utmost For His Highest re Rom.8:27,34] 


   My doctor ordered an ultrasound for me at 
a clinic thirty miles away. I arrived at the 
facility with a half hour to spare. 
   I'll grab a cup of coffee, I thought upon 
seeing a teeny caf in the building's foyer. The 
woman behind the counter greeted me warmly. Her 
accent told me she was Eastern European, so I asked 
her about her country of origin. 
   "Poland," she said.
   "Really? I visit Poland every year," I 
said. The moment she realized my personal interest 
in her homeland, she began talking to me as 
though we were best friends. 
   "My husband and I immigrated to Canada in 
1994," she said. "We came with only one suitcase of 
belongings and had to start life over. She told me 
that they've reached retirement age and are 
unsure whether they should stay in Canada or return 
to Poland. "Finances are the issue," she said. 
"We don't know what to do." 
   "May I pray for you about that?" I asked. 
She nodded. I thanked Jesus for loving this 
woman and for having good plans for her. I asked 
Him to give wisdom and guidance for this 
decision, and then I asked Him to reveal Himself to 
her in a tangible way. The prayer lasted fifteen 
seconds, but I trust the impact lasts for eternity. 
   I'm growing more courageous about praying 
for strangers who share their concerns with me. 
Why not? Knowing that Jesus prays for me brings 
me great encouragement. Seeing others 
responses when I pray for them tells me they're 
encouraged too. by Grace Fox

2019 Devotional by Guideposts and Zondervan]  


   Do not be discouraged by the difficulty 
of keeping your focus on Me. I know that your 
heart's desire is to be aware of My Presence 
continually. This is a lofty goal; you aim toward it but 
never fully achieve it in this life. Don't let 
feelings of failure weigh you down. Instead, try to 
see yourself as I see you. First of all, I am 
delighted by your deep desire to walk closely with Me 
through your life. I am pleased each time you 
initiate communication with Me. In addition, I notice 
the progress you have made since you first 
resolved to live in My Presence.  
   When you realize that your mind has 
wandered away from Me, don't be alarmed or surprised. 
You live in a world that has been rigged to 
distract you. Each time you plow your way through the 
massive distractions to communicate with Me, you 
achieve a victory. Rejoice in these tiny triumphs, 
and they will increasingly light up your days. 
(Rom. 8:33, 34; Heb. 4:14-16) [Jesus Calling by 
Sarah Young] 


Hebrews 7:25 - Christ - Our Faithful and 
Supreme High Priest.

testimony on this passage of Scripture, either 
personal or otherwise, I would be interested in 
hearing from you.  Thanks in advance and let's keep 
uplifting Jesus that all might be drawn to Him. Fred
