It’s not what you know, it’s who you know. At least that’s what anyone will tell you if you want to make it big in business, or get a great job, or to get the latest ‘In’ thing on the market. We all strive to make connections that we will benefit from.
But in this dog eat dog world this form of thinking and action has lead to an increase in jealousy, despair, hatred, envy, and striving. People try to use or make connections with people to become “stars” overnight, to go the best functions with the biggest celebrities, get tickets to sold out concerts, you name there’s someone striving for it.
That makes me sad. I have no problem with people benefiting of others, especially if they’re friends, it’s just when others get hurt that I start to think we’ve lost the plot somewhere.
I believe we strive to make these connections with people, because God has placed inside us an urging for us to make a connection with Him. A connection that eclipses any other connection you could ever make. Jesus Christ stands at the door of the greatest club and he is the only endorsement you will EVER need to enter.
Hebrews 7:25 “Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.”
That verse blows me away! It says that he can save (help, heal, aid, comfort, fight for, protect) those who come to God through him (which as we already know through scripture is the only way we can come to Him). Meaning if you have accepted Jesus Christ into your heart as Lord and Savior, these promises are for you!
It also goes on to say – since He always lives to make intercession for them. He is waiting on the right hand side of the throne of God, he constantly has the fathers ear. His words with the father hold weight, more weight than any set of words we could string together, and he lives to intercede for us. He endorses us!
2 Corinthians 1:20 tells us, “For all the promises of God in Him are yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God Through us.” Not only does He make intercession for us, but He says that the promises of god in HIM (through Him) are yes and Amen. So that He may be glorified through us, because His word states that His word does not return to Him void, but fulfills that which it was sent for.
What you want and need has been promised through Jesus, who intercedes on your behalf to the Father, who has released the fulfillment of the promise, so that he may be glorified in and through us, through the fruit our lives will grow and bear.
