Jesus Is Our ONLY Mediator – 1 Timothy 2

From my reading in 1 Timothy 2 in the One Year Bible New Testament.

Jesus is the only mediator we need.

Not pastors. Not priests. Not saints. Not Mary.  Paul does not make this issue any more clear than he does here in his letter to Timothy.

“For there is only one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus.” 1 Timothy 2:5

Jesus has purchased this direct access to God through His death on the cross.

“He gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone. This is the message God gave to the world at just the right time.” 1 Timothy 2:6

Jesus mediates for us.  He is the only one who reconciles us to God. He is the way we communicate with God.

We don’t have to go through saints or Mary are anyone else. Jesus is enough. Jesus is the only bridge for us to get to God.

God provided us this way because he wants everyone to be saved!

“This is good and pleases God our Savior, who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth.” 1 Timothy 2:3–4

Jesus wants to be your only mediator.

He wanted you to be saved and understand the truth. Come to him because He is only way that we gain access to the Father.
