The bible says, “For there is one God and one mediator between God and humanity, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all, a testimony at the proper time.” 1 TIMOTHY 2:5–6
There is One Mediator between God and Man: A mediator is, “one who intervenes between two parties.” When you buy a house, your realtor serves as a mediator of sorts, communicating between the buyer and the seller. When two siblings are in a heated argument, parents mediate between the kids.
Similarly, Jesus is our mediator because He restored the harmony between God and man which was broken by sin. He intervened on our behalf.
All too often, we seek to find ‘substitute mediators’ in an attempt to bridge that gap between God and us. We rely on our own goodness or on another person. However, those mediators fail to deliver.
The good news is there is only “One Mediator.” His name is Jesus, and He is available around the clock.
So as you make your journey today and share your faith—talk about that One Mediator, Jesus, and the fact that He restored your relationship with God.
