Our Mediator

In Hebrews 4:16 the Bible says, “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” What a promise and privilege that is! For Christians, prayer shouldn’t just be something we do occasionally. It should be something we do on a daily basis. It says we can come boldly to the throne of Grace. How is that possible? Mark 15:38 says that when Christ died on the cross “the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom.” That symbolizes for us that we now have free access to God. Christ made it possible by his death on the cross.

I Timothy 2:5 says, “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” We don’t need any other mediator. Christ is all we need. This verse clearly teaches that there is no other mediator. It says there is only one. Don’t let anyone tell you that there are other mediators. Nowhere does the Bible tell us that we can pray to Mary or the saints. That is an invention of men. We need to let the Bible be our authority.

It is alright to ask others to pray for us. That is called intercession. I Timothy 2:1 says, “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men.” That doesn’t mean that we can ask others to do our praying for us. You need to be praying too.
