107 truths about God, the world, and you.
25: Jesus represents you before God.
For every high priest chosen from among men is appointed to act on behalf of men in relation to God, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins.
Hebrews 5:1 ESV
As Priest, Jesus represents us before God. His once for all sacrifice – perfect in its singularity – works eternally on our behalf. He reconciles Believers to God.
He satisfies godly justice before the Holy.

Colossians 1:21-22 NIV
What a blessing! Jesus re-presents us before the Father. Formerly sin-full, by faith in Him, He makes us pure, holy, guiltless. Let this truth sink deep into your heart today.
