"Mediator" - Day 20
1 Timothy 2:5
For there is only one God and one MEDIATOR who can reconcile God and humanity--the man Christ Jesus.
No one else has ever done what Jesus did, and no one ever will. God is so very good, and we are so very fallen that only the greatest sacrifice could bring about reconciliation. Throughout the Bible, God compares our sins to adultery. When we sin, He feels the hurt so very deeply - His beloved, His only one (and yes, it is true - if you were the only one Christ would have died for you!) has violently rejected His love and broken the sacred vow. In order to right such a wrong, Jesus had to pay the ultimate price as our Mediator. He made atonement with a perfect sacrifice - the only of its kind. Let's give thanks for the power and determination of Jesus to face agony on the cross in order to reunite God and His beloved!
