Hebrews 7:24 Because Jesus lives forever, he has a permanent priesthood

Popular Christianity makes a big deal about the incarnation (Christmas) and the atonement (Good Friday) and even the resurrection (Easter). But not much is celebrated about the ascension (I mean, come on, it is always on a Thursday), and, while there is Pentecost, that is all about the Holy Spirit, so what is Jesus up to until we come back to Christmas again? The creed says that he sits at the right hand of God awaiting the time when he will come to judge the quick and the dead (and maybe the slow also). Hebrews fills in the blank. Jesus is our priest, permanently, forever. Whatever we need to be alright with God, to be fully in the love of God, Jesus has done, will do and is doing. Lay aside the mystery of the Trinity for the time being. What we need to know is that whatever we need to be alright with God, to be fully in the love of God, Jesus has done, will do and is doing. Do I need to repeat it a third time? What does it mean to you that Jesus is interceding for you right now?
