We do not need to have another human, no matter how mighty, or special, to intercede for us before God. As his children, we can go to our Father freely, knowing that God himself has provided the perfect mediator between himself and us. That mediator, alone, is head of the Church and Chief Priest before God on our behalf. His name is Christ Jesus, and he is our Lord, Savior and brother.
For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all men -- the testimony given in its proper time.
— 1 Timothy 2:5-6
Dear Lord, you are our God, and we praise you for making access to you so freely available. We praise You that in your grace, you not only provided a ransom for our sin, but you also provided a mediator for our approach to you. We thank you as well, for paying the price and staying at the Father's side to intercede and speak for us! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
