Please explain to your neighbor what that means.
Jesus makes intercession for us.

Heb. 7:25
Romans 8:34 (ESV), Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died--more than that, who was raised--who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.
Heb. 7:25 (ESV), Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them.
