“For there is one God and one mediator between God and humanity, the man Christ Jesus” 1 Timothy 2:5
The expected relationship between God and humanity was broken in the Garden of Eden. Human being lost their mutual connection with the almighty God, and the proper mode of worship and interaction was not regained until our mediator appeared. Jesus, our loving mediator, brought back the privilege for every human to speak and to hear from God.
We could worship in spirit and truth again, unlike when people worship and live in fear with God. The only fear we have now is to honor and reference God as our father. Jesus has done the best for us by standing as an intermediary between humans and God. He went through the cross, prayed breathtakingly, fasted, and suffered from learning obedience to ensure that the two parties come into a mutual consensus.
Isaiah 53:5 says, “He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes, we are healed.”
Everyone who believed has been transformed by this incredible act of Jesus; being the mediator. And this same means of transformation remains our words of testimony; that Jesus came to this world, suffered and died for us to present us blameless and holy before God (Colossians 1:21-22).
Henceforth, we are privileged to stand in the presence of God without condemnation or guilt. We could enter into the temple and give pure and sincere worship to our God. Understand that Jesus is our mediator and embrace the privilege. “Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, set your focus on Jesus, the apostle and high priest whom we confess.” Hebrews 3:1
Thank you, Jesus, for your sacrifices, for your love, and the privilege you have given me to stand before God again. I ask for your grace to continue in you in Jesus’ name. Amen.
