"We're not playing with you any more!" We heard more than once, but usually before our friends made it to their front door, we had worked things out, and soon we were playing again.
If only it were that easy to reconcile when we get to be adults! We end up paying lawyers to mediate our differences.
Thank God that He is in the business of reconciliation! He sent His Son, Jesus, to be the Mediator between man and God.
God's purpose is that all men should be saved and come to realize the truth. And that is, that there is only one God, and only one intermediary between God and men, Jesus Christ the man. He gave himself as a ransom for us all, an act of redemption which happened once, but which stands for all times as a witness to what he is.
