Coffee Time with Jesus

  • Jesus: Undefiled
    For such a High Priest was fitting for us,
    who is holy, harmless, undefiled,
    separate from sinners,
    and has become higher than the heavens.
    Hebrews 7:26
    Jesus is the perfect Son of God. Just as the sacrificial lamb had to be without blemish, so Jesus was the Undefiled, sinless Substitute who died for your sin. Satan tempted Jesus to sin, but Jesus rejected the enemy’s temptation (Matthew 4:1-11). Jesus can help you overcome your temptation or bad habits. Some people accused Jesus of sin; but when He challenged them to name one sin, they were not able to do it (John 8:46). In the same way, you should have a blameless reputation before your enemies. On the night before Jesus died, He didn’t want to drink the cup of punishment, but He drank it willingly, submitting to the suffering of the Cross (Matthew 26:39-42). Just as Jesus was perfectly obedient to the Father, will you willingly become obedient to the will of God?
    Lord Jesus, You are my example for godly living; give me the power to resist sin. You are my High Priest, who prays for me in Heaven; intercede to the Father for me.
    “Undefiled” means “the absence of sin.” But Jesus is more than One who never sinned; He has all the positive attributes of holiness. Jesus is as holy as the Father is, so He can be your perfect High Priest.
    Lord Jesus, I know You are my perfect High Priest, so I come asking You to help me in my struggles. Keep me from sin, make me holy, and use me this day. Amen.

    Jesus can be your Intercessor because He was Undefiled.
