The Best of the Portals of Prayer

Read: Hebrews 8 / Psalm 118

“He is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.”
Hebrews 7:25

Our Priest for All Time

To all eternity, Jesus is the Priest through whom we have access to the Father. For all time, now and in the future, Jesus is our assurance that the Father hears us. As our Altar, our Sacrifice, and our Priest, He makes our prayers audible to the Father. He shall never have to be replaced, He needs no substitute. He needs no relief. He is capable for all time to serve us. We know his sacrifice was once for all time, because it was perfect and complete. Everything He did for our sakes continues forever.
The suffering, praying, ministering, obeying, believing, and trusting that were hallmarks of the life of our Priest continue to our benefit. He retains the love and sympathy He felt for mankind as He walked among them. He still shows the mercy and compassion that brought Him to the cross. As he then looked out upon men with great tenderness.
