PASTORS' DAILY DEVOTIONAL
He Goes Before UsJohn Tilton
Hebrews 9:15 For this reason Christ is the mediatorof a new covenant,that those who are calledmay receive the promisedeternal inheritance—now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant.
Mediation is defined as bringing resolution. A mediator attempts to bring peace through challenges. Christ does in fact bring resolution or bridge to the new covenant which is the promse of eternal life; all because He sacrificed and died for our trsangressions. The scripture is profound because it's truth is so simple and powerful.
To know that God goes before us so that we can be forgiven for our sinds is so satisfying. Its like when I was young. I would always love having someone interced on my behalf. It's amazing to know that Jesus is there to intercede on my behalf.
Dear Lord, I am simple so thankful to be reminded how you go before me as long as I seek you and am obedient.
