Ambrose: Jesus, the way

Tuesday, July 18, 2017
    Therefore [Jesus] is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.
    —Hebrews 7:25 (NIV)
    [Jesus] is our mouth, through which we speak to the Father; He is our eye, through which we see the Father; He is our right hand through which we offer ourselves to the Father. Unless He intercedes, there is no intercourse with God.
    ... St. Ambrose of Milan (Aurelius Ambrosius) (339-397), from Lib. de Issac et Anima, quoted in The Institutes of the Christian Religion, v. I [1559], John Calvin & tr. John Allen, Presbyterian Board of Publication and Sabbath-School Work, 1921, III.xx.21, p. 879 (see the book)
    See also Heb. 7:25; John 10:30; 17:20-24; Rom. 8:26-27; Heb. 2:17,18; 4:15; 9:24
Quiet time reflection:
    Bless You, Lord, for revealing the Father to us.
