Therefore, He is always able to save those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to intercede for them. Hebrews 7:25 HCSB
It is time for the championship games of the baseball season. In most games when one team is ahead, they will bring in a pitcher from the bullpen to “save” the game. The St. Louis Cardinals are playing the San Francisco Giants for the National League Championship. They were up by one run, so they brought in a pitcher to “save” the game. All that was needed was three outs to win the game, but after walking two batters the pitcher then threw a wild pitch which allowed the San Francisco Giants to score and tie the game score. The pitcher did not “save” the game.
This Scripture tells us that Jesus is always able to “save” those who accept Him as Lord. He always intercedes for those who believe in Him. His salvation, however, is more than saving a baseball game. He is able to forgive past, present, and future sins and to save a person from the judgment of God. This does not give believers the right to continue to willfully sin, knowing that their sins will be forgiven. It does give confidence that God will always “save” the game for us. We do not have to worry about losing our salvation.
Challenge: If you are a believer, praise God for saving you and giving you eternal life. If you are not a believer, pray and ask Jesus to be the Lord of your life and to save you.
