“If one person sins against another,
God may mediate for the offender.”

1 Samuel 2:25

How thankful we can be that there is one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus (1 Tim.2:5); and that he understands us, our weaknesses and our shortcomings! Our great Mediator is one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are – yet he did not sin. (Heb.4:15). He is on our side, able and willing not just to sympathise, but to empathise. Let’s remember John’s reassuring words, If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. (1 Jn.1:9)
