Jesus is the only mediator between man and God

Jesus is the only mediator between man and God

“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.” 1Timothy.2:5-6

When mankind fell short of the glory of God in the Garden of Eden, where Adam and Eve got deceived by the enemy of their souls, they subjected themselves to the rulership of Satan and automatically lost the power of dominion that God the Father entrusted in their hands.

But our God is a God who knows the possibility of violating his known will because he knows we are free moral agents, so he prepared in due time a redeemer called Jesus, whom he would use to buy us back from the devil; and at the end, man fell!

He brought Jesus into the picture to save mankind from their sin, no one else can save us except Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

Our above opening scripture says something so profound in verses five and six. It states: “For there is one God and one mediator between God and men,, the man Christ Jesus; who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.”

Jesus had to put on the human body like us to be a perfect atonement for our sins since we are human beings with bodies. He had to be a perfect example to appease God, the Father for our sins.

So, we must keep in mind to accept Jesus as the only mediator because no Buddha, no Confucius, no Muhammad all other mediators can take you to heaven except Jesus Christ of Nazareth, who gave his life for you and me.

Prayer for salvation: Lord, thank you for dying on the cross of Calvary for my sake. Today I acknowledge you as lord of my life. For you have said in your word, whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. I am born again in Jesus’ mighty name Amen.
