There is an intercessory work going on between us, and God the Father and Christ. Because we have a high priest passed into the heavens, Jesus Christ the righteous, we can now live in the Holy of Holies and come boldly before the throne of grace. As high priest, Christ ever lives to make intercession for us, and is able to save us and see us through into the family of God.
