"And He Stepped Forward" - 05/21/17 - Jeremiah 26-29

"But in Jeremiah's case, Ahikam son of Shaphan stepped forward and took his side" (26:24)
"This man, along with his father, served as a scribe under Josiah when The Book of The Law was found in the temple (2 Kings 22:8-14).  Ahikam's brother Gemariah also opposed Jehoiakim's burning of Jeremiah's scroll (6:25).  This faithful family was supportive of Jeremiah and was instrumental in saving his life." (Taken from my Bible study notes.)

Immediately, upon reading the above verses, our Christ came to mind.
How thankful I am it is He whom we are able to depend on.
Unconditionally loved by. 
Accepted by.
Rely upon.
Trust in.
Knowing without a doubt.
He has taken our side.
He is our Defense Attorney so to speak. 
He has promised He has our back when it comes to covering our sins with Grace and Mercy.
With His Blood.
He is The One Who has interceded for each one of His,  so we may reside with our ABBA in Heaven one day.
For Eternity.
He is The One Who is transforming our heart, our life, the all of us to be more like Him.

No greater Love than The Love Christ has for me.
For you.
For all.

He died and rose from the grave proving this.

Whyever would we rely on anyone or anything other than Him.
