Before Christ came and died on the cross for our sins, men were not allowed to go directly to God, they had to go to a High Priest who would then intercede for them. This all changed after Christ. In 1 Timothy 2:5 Paul explains, For there is one God and one mediator between God and me, the man Christ Jesus. Christ became the real-time mediator for us with God. He covered our sins to allow us to be in God’s presence. Without Christ we would still be slaves to the law. But through Christ the law was fulfilled and he covers us. Praise Him for our gift of eternity and the ability to have a true relationship with God..
