Coffee Time with Jesus

  • Jesus: The Man Christ Jesus
    For there is one God
    and one Mediator
    between God and men,
    the Man Christ Jesus.
    1 Timothy 2:5
    Jesus was human because He was born of the virgin Mary. He is the Man Christ Jesus; therefore He understands your desires and dreams, and He knows the weaknesses of the human body. He knows what it means to be tired; He suffered on Calvary until He lost consciousness. You do not have any natural human weakness that Jesus doesn’t understand. Therefore, the Man Christ Jesus can intercede to the Father for you. He can ask for help for your weaknesses. Because Jesus is a man, He can be your Mediator.
    Christ Jesus, I come to You as my Mediator. You know my weaknesses and You understand my failures; ask the Father to give me strength to stand against temptation. You understand my dreams and ambitions; help me reach my life goals.
    Jesus is the Man Christ Jesus. When the title “Christ” appears before the human name “Jesus,” it emphasizes His work on the cross as our Redeemer. When the name “Jesus” appears first, it emphasizes the man who died on the cross. So in today’s verse, the Man Christ Jesus stands at the right hand of the Father as your Intercessor and Mediator (Hebrews 7:24-25). He is pleading with the Father to forgive your sins. Confess all your sins now and ask for forgiveness, because the Man Christ Jesus is interceding to the Father for you.
    Christ Jesus, I come asking for forgiveness of sins. Be my Mediator with the Father for me. Cleanse me and make me useable to serve You this day. Amen.

    The Man Christ Jesus is your effective Mediator to the Father.
