One Mediator

Posted: October 29, 2012 by doulos tou Theou in Christianity, Discipleship

‘There is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.’ (1 Tim 2:5 )

Since Jesus Christ is the only Mediator of reconciliation between God and men; then reconciled souls should thankfully ascribe all the peace, favours, and comforts they have from God, to their Lord Jesus Christ.

Whenever you have had your hearts warmed with comfort, say, “O my soul, thou mayest thank thy good Lord Jesus Christ for all this! Had not he interposed as a Mediator of reconciliation, I could never have had access to, or friendly communion with God to all eternity.”

If Jesus Christ is the true and only Mediator, both of reconciliation and meritorious intercession between God and men, how safe and secure then is the condition and state of believers. Surely, as his mediation, by sufferings, has fully reconciled, so his mediation, by intercession, will everlastingly maintain that state of peace betwixt them and God, and prevent all future breaches. “Being justified by faith, we have peace with God, through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Rom. 5:1 ).

O thank your dear Lord Jesus for your present and future heaven! These are mercies which daily emerge out of the ocean of Christ’s blood, and come swimming in it to our doors. Blessed be God for Jesus Christ!”

— John Flavel
