Joining Jesus On Bended Knee

By Laurie Nichols

April 1, 2016

When I think of prayer, I always think first of Hebrews 7:25: “Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.” Why? Well, because it’s a little bit of an odd picture of the power of Jesus, the love of God, and the dependence of Jesus combined.

In this verse, we see that Jesus is able to save (rescue, restore, redeem) anyone and everyone who comes to God through Him. Good and well, but when we get to part of his modus operandi, we see that it includes prayer. This Jesus, who we know created the heavens and earth and everything and everyone in them is also on proverbial bended knee before the Father pleading for those in darkness, sin, and pain to be brought into the loving fold of the Father. Amazing!

As Christians—“little Christs,” those who claim to bear His name—we are called to follow the model of Jesus. In this verse, we see two things: first, Jesus saves; second, Jesus prays. This second part we can imitate perfectly. We can join Jesus on bended knee as we pray for those who don’t yet know Him. When we read Jesus saves, we know that it is always Him who does the work, but we can be part of His saving mission as we pray for others, lend a word of encouragement, offer a helping hand, or give of ourselves and our resources in other ways.
