The Mediator

Job 9:33 (ISV) There is not yet a mediator between us, who would set his hand on the two of us

Debbie worked in one of the top commercial banks in her country. She was an entry-level staff. One day, she had a minor altercation with one of the bank’s customers. The customer had come in very pissed because his account was debited without the ATM dispensing the cash. And to make matters worse, his card got stuck in the ATM. He met Debbie and demanded for his cash and card, stating that he was on transit and this was his last resort.

Debbie tried to let him know that there was a process he had to follow to address the issues and that it might take a minimum of 24hours before it could be resolved, but he would have none of it. He became so furious, using abusive words and was ready to make a scene when Debbie inadvertently remarked that shouting won’t solve his problems and that he had better calm down and the customer at that point created a big scene.

Debbie was queried and she responded to the query. But when the matter was being discussed in the management meeting, she wasn’t there because she is not in the management team, however, her Head of Department who works with her and is also member of the management team was able to speak on her behalf, pleading for leniency stating that Debbie has been a good staff and that this was an honest mistake.

Philippians 2:6-8 tells us that Jesus, being God, laid aside His mighty power and privileges as God, so he could take up flesh and become like one of us. By doing this, he was able to give Himself up for us so we could be saved. But that’s not all, He is also able to daily make intercessions for us before the Father by reason of his shed blood. He pleads on our behalf citing not our good works but His.

So today, the cry of Job expressed in today’s text has been met. We have Jesus who though is God is also fully man and He is our mediator. Hebrews 7:25 puts it this way, “Wherefore He is able to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them”

Go into today rejoicing, you have no reason to fail nor falter, for you have Jesus at work in you and for you.

Prayer: Thank the Lord for being your mediator and helper.
