Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. Romans 8:34
Our English word intercede comes from two Latin words: inter (between) and cedere (go). So to intercede is to “go between” two parties. When a teacher breaks up a scuffle on the playground, she intercedes. When an NFL referee breaks up a fight on the field, he intercedes.
In the same way, Jesus is our “Interceder” or “Intercessor.” Who is He going between when He intercedes for us? Between “the accuser of [the] brethren” (Revelation 12:10), that is, Satan and the Father. We see a perfect example of Satan’s accusatory role in Job 1–2. Satan accused Job before God of being weak in faith and offered to prove the point by testing Job, which God allowed (Job 1:6-12). Just so, Satan will take every opportunity to accuse us of unworthiness before God. But Paul says that no one can bring a charge or condemnation against us because Christ died for us, removing our sins and unworthiness (Romans 8:33-34).
Thank God today that Jesus is our Intercessor, coming between Satan and the Father on our behalf.
There is no way of obtaining favor from God but through the intercession of Christ. John Calvin
