Coffee Time with Jesus

  • Jesus: The Mediator
    For there is one God and one Mediator
    between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus.
    1 Timothy 2:5
    A mediator is a middle person between two other people or someone who acts on behalf of another before an organization or person of authority. Jesus is the Mediator to the Father for you. Just as a lawyer is a mediator who represents you before a judge, so Jesus is your Mediator who represents you before the Judge who forgives your sins. Just as a sales agent represents you in a business contract, so Jesus is your Mediator who presents your prayers to the Father. How can Jesus represent you today?
    Jesus, I can’t represent myself; I’m too imperfect to stand before the Father’s throne to present my prayers to Him. I will pray through You because the Father will listen to You.
    A human mediator could never represent you to the Father. Another mediator would have to intercede for his or her own sin. Also, a human mediator would have his or her own fleshly agenda and wouldn’t be concerned with your needs and problems. Because Jesus is God, He knows the Father’s heart, and He can properly represent you to the throne. Because Jesus lived as a perfect man, He knows your human inclinations, and He can be a Mediator for you. Go to the Father through the Mediator.
    Jesus, I am left alone and lost, if you are not my Mediator. Come to me, plead my case, forgive my sins, and deliver me to Heaven. Amen.
    Go Deeper: 1 Timothy 2:1-8
    Jesus is the only One who can be your Mediator to the Father.
