Celebrating the Birth of our Mediator!

Hope you are all doing well and enjoying the busyness that goes along with this special Christmas season! I am sorry for the long absence here. We have been very busy with many good things, one of which is taking care of a new foster baby. I do hope to do better at updating! 

Today I was reading through Job 9 and this verse stood out to me.

Job 9:33 HCSB
There is no one to judge between us, to lay his hand on both of us.

Job realized that because of God's greatness and his smallness, he could not question or answer to God. This is what he said just a few verses before:

Job 9:15 HCSB
Even if I were in the right, I could not answer. I could only beg my Judge for mercy.

I think that Job realized that there needed to be someone that could be a go-between, someone that understood both divinity and humanity, a mediator. He was looking forward to the time when God would send a redeemer to reconcile mankind to Himself. That mediator/redeemer is our precious King Jesus! 

1 Timothy 2:5 HCSB
For there is one God and one mediator  between God and humanity, Christ Jesus, Himself human.

This Christmas season, let's celebrate not only the birth, but also the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and praise God that through Him (Jesus) we have access to the Father. We now have someone that is our go-between, our mediator!
