Jesus does many things and fills many roles, but one position that He takes, benefits us more than I can possibly say in this short devotional. Paul said,

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… (1 Timothy 2.5–6). 

Our sin separates us from God, but Jesus stands between us and God to take away that sin and to reconcile us back to God. This is His role as a mediator. Everything that Jesus does has immense importance but surely goes beyond description.


  • Where would we be without Jesus as our mediator?
  • When was the last time you thanked God for Jesus?
