For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus

1 Timothy 2:5 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

When Adam ate the fruit forbidden him,

He then began ‘tween man and God a rift,

An endless ocean that no man could swim

Composed of slimy sin no limb could lift.

Yet God so loved the world He sent His Son

To build a bridge of grace to Heaven’s shore,

And only Jesus Christ could be the one

To take upon the sin for us He bore.

Christ spans the gulf, His body and His blood

The solitary bridge from man to God.

If we but step across in faith the flood

Will never touch us as we walk abroad.

Christ is the only one to mediate,

A bridge to intercede and advocate.
