our mighty saviour

JC Ryle in Our Profession:

The Christian is meant to understand that we have a mighty, living Friend in heaven, who not only died for us, but rose again, and after rising again took His seat at the right hand of God, to be our Advocate and Intercessor with the Father until He comes again. We are meant to understand that Christ not only died for us, but is alive for us, and actively working on our behalf at this very day. In short, the encouragement that Paul holds out to believers is, the living priesthood of Jesus Christ. We are not only to look to a Savior who died as our Substitute, and shed His blood for us, but to a Savior who also after His resurrection took His seat at God’s right hand, and lives there as his constant Intercessor and Priest.
