Our mediator. April 12.
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; 1 Timothy 2:5
Have you ever looked up the biblical definition of mediator? It is a go-between and one who reconciles. We need to remember Jesus is my mediator between me and God. God demands full and complete obedience. We struggle with This at times. And just about the time God is getting upset with us, Jesus steps in, reminding God that he’s been here in the flesh and knows what this life is like. Saying Father let’s work with them, I stand in their place , have mercy. This doesn’t mean we stay in our sin but it means God thru Christ helps us on toward the perfection He desires of us. And we being brought near to God by the ministry of Christ, should not grow discouraged with ourselves along the journey, knowing I have one Who is man and God as my mediator. Let’s keep our faith in Him not ourselves or others. For He works continually reconciling us believers to our Father.
