As believers, we celebrate the finished work of Jesus, emphasizing that He initiated and carried out redemption through His incarnation, perfect obedience, sacrificial death, miraculous resurrection, and majestic exaltation. We rejoice that there is nothing we can do to add to the full salvation He purchased for us. It is indeed glorious to meditate on the redemption story carried out in the life of Jesus. However, some have concluded that since His ascension to Heaven, He has taken a break from or even permanently retired from His work on our behalf. That assumption is a huge mistake, for He is still at work:
Consequently he is able for all time to save those who approach God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them (Hebrews 7:25 NRSV).
