A perfect ministry of intercession

“From his exalted heavenly position, the Lord conducts a perfect ministry of intercession on behalf of those who approach God through him (Rom. 8:34; Heb. 7:25, 9:24; 1 Jn. 2:1). Though Christians (e.g., 1 Tim. 2:1-2) and even the Holy Spirit (Rom. 8:26-27) are said to intercede or make petitions for others from earth, Jesus is the only heavenly intercessor mentioned in Scripture.”
