Give Yourself A Living Sacrifice
By Andrew Murray
The more we study and try to practice this grace of intercession, the more we become overwhelmed by its greatness and our feebleness. Let every such impression lead us to listen: "My grace is sufficient for thee," and to answer truthfully: "Our sufficiency is of God." Take courage: it is in the intercession of Christ that you are called to take part. The burden and the agony, the triumph and the victory are all His. Learn from Him, yield to His Spirit in you, to know how to pray. He gave Himself a sacrifice to God for men, that He might have the right and power of intercession. "He bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors." Let your faith rest boldly on His finished work. Let your heart wholly identify itself with Him in His death and in His life. It will be to you, as to Him, your power of intercession.
