Jesus Christ is now at the right hand of God. He so exalted and transcendent that it is easy to forget that He is still human. Some may even suppose that He stopped being human and went back to just being God. But as Paul made clear, “He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heavens” (Ephesians 4:10 NIV). He is still the same human Jesus.
A human life has been lived for you. That same human life is still being lived for you. Hebrews 7:26 tells us that He became High Priest for us and stills lives to make intercession for us—still lives the same human life now, far beyond the reach of death. He is “holy, innocent, unstained, separated from sinners, and exalted above the heavens” …and still human. The eternal Son of God became human not for a mere thirty-three years but forever.
