The one Mediator

ATD 179The Word

“For there is only one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus. He gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone.” 1 Timothy 2:5, 6

Thought

While driving out West I passed a billboard on the side of the interstate which said the “Messiah” ,now living in Florida, could be seen at a soon upcoming event. The remainder of the advertisement contained dates, location, and time. I remember actually laughing out loud, but then quickly become serious as I realized unfortunately many would actually think this impostor was their hope. Jesus warned of impostors in Matthew 24, and many have come and gone since his warning.

There is one God and Mediator capable of genuine reconciliation, and he is clearly described and identified in the Bible. Many have already received him, and as many as continue to believe he will continue to bring freedom through his gift of grace.

He gave his life so that we might have life. This freedom is available to all.

Prayer

Thank you Jesus Christ, Messiah, Savior of the world, Lord of all! Thank you for love, mercy, and grace. Amen.
