Jesus is alive and always active

Have you ever asked yourself: what is Jesus doing now that he is in heaven??

Some might think that he is just hanging out in heaven enjoying himself watching us from above with a cup of coffee sitting in his throne. In Hebrews 10:10-14 we read that after offering himself as a sacrifice for our sins, Christ is in fact sitting at the right hand of God. This can lead us to believe that he is just simply waiting for the moment when he comes rule and reign on earth. But what is we read different passages in the bible; we will soon discover that Jesus is not just sitting at the right hand of God in Heaven, but that he is very active in our favor right now.

Even though Christ is with the Father in heaven, Jesus also lives in the heart of every believer and is at all times interceding for those who believe in Him bringing our prayers before the father. Isn’t that amazing to know that we can always count with Jesus to help us get thought anything? We may not have the strength to do it on our own but if we accept his help, we can be victorious in him.

In 1 John 2: 1 says: “My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.” Jesus is our lawyer when we sin, he is the mediator between God and us. Christ declares that we have been justified by his sacrifice and our faith in him. I know sometimes we want to do things on our own, but just like people need lawyers for a legal matter in court we need JESUS to intercede in our behave.

Jesus is occupied in Heaven doing the will of the Father and we should do the same as his followers. He saved us in order for us to be a reflection of his life in our work, attitudes, words and behavior. If He loved us, we should be sharing his love with everyone special during these difficult times that we are in right now. Calling people, praying for them and leading them to Jesus is one of the greatest acts of love.
