Job 9:33 Nor is there any mediator between us, Who may lay his hand on us both.

In the old covenant, there was not a mediator between God and mankind. If someone did everything correctly, they got all the blessings of God. However, if they missed the mark, they experienced the wrath of God. The problem with this system is we’re born into iniquity and our flesh is set to oppose God. So, the people would experience some version of God’s wrath.

1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus,

Praise God for Jesus. Under the new covenant, Jesus became our mediator. He’s our middle man. When we accept Him as Lord, we get an advocate. The wrath of God, for mankind, was poured out on Jesus. He took our punishment. He goes before the Judge (God) and let’s Him know He’s paid for all of our sins. And because of His payment on our behalf, we get to live a blessed abundant life.

Praise God for our mediator (Jesus). Without Him, we would suffer.
