The Three In One in Our Daily Living

God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit is involved in our living out our salvation.

When I awake in the morning the first thing I do is pray. The Holy Spirit is there in my praying to get it right for me. Romans 8:26 tells us: “Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

The Holy Spirit intercedes for us on behalf of our prayers.

Many a time we cannot express what we are feeling or thinking as we desire. Our minds are twisted by our negative experiences, the untruths we have been told, the sinful ways we perceived in ourselves and others, our sinful acts that we have committed and are committing. All of these experiences and actions helped shape our thinking. The Holy Spirit cuts through all of our fog, and He knows what we should be saying to God, and He communicates it.

Sometimes in our praying we say things we should not say. Yes. Sometimes we sin in our very praying, and the Lord Jesus intercedes to the Father on our behalf.

The Lord Jesus Christ intercedes to the Father on behalf of our sin.

“Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.” Romans 8:27

The Lord Jesus knows the mind of the Holy Spirit, because He is One with the Spirit. Therefore, our Lord knows all that the Spirit is groaning on our behalf. Our Lord also searches our hearts. He knows all that is in our hearts. Is not this a comforting thought? There is no need for us to pretend before God. We can come open minded, honest and candid as we should. Our Lord Jesus Christ knows it all.

Our Lord pleads our cause to the Father according to the will of God. The Lord Jesus Christ is One with the Spirit and One with the Father. He knows the Will of God for the entire universe and He also knows the will of God for each of us. Our Lord not only intercedes on our behalf regarding our sinful actions and thoughts, but also on behalf of our aspirations and our hearts desires.

Knowing the will of God, knowing what is in our hearts, and knowing what the Spirit is communicating, makes our Savior the Lord Jesus Christ the perfect Intercessor on our behalf. As the potter works with the clay to bring the object in his mind to reality using the clay, so the Lord intercedes on our behalf to the Father to achieve the same result - a vessel that brings glory to the Father in our daily living.
