How To Pray-Part 5

June 5, 2015

 

My friend, there is only one-way to communicate with God. I can tell you there is a yearning in our hearts to communicate with God and there is only one-way that can happen and it is through the name of Jesus Christ.  It is because of His sacrifice on Calvary that we have a mediator who ever lives to intercede for us. 

Hebrews 7:25–“Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.

You see, the Bible says that Jesus Christ is our Advocate before the Father. He is our Mediator. There is only one-way to heaven and it is through Jesus Christ for salvation. There is only one-way to communicate with God in heaven and it is through His Son Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ came out of heaven and came down to this earth where He was placed upon a cross and on that cross He became SIN (singular) for you and me.  Jesus also took upon Himself all of our all actions of SINS (plural). All of our actions of SINS were placed upon Him on the cross, every sin we would ever commit from now and all eternity He died with in that one moment in time. He became all this for you and me. He was your substitute and mine. You see the death of Jesus Christ was a sacrificial substitutionary death. God took the life of His Son Jesus on the cross instead of yours and mine.  He was our substitute.
