In 1953 Baskin Robbins wowed ice cream lovers by offering customers a choice of 31 flavors. That’s a great offer for ice cream, but unfortunately, our world has adopted a “31” viewpoint concerning salvation. In other words, we’ve decided we can be reconciled to God through the plan of our choice, be it self-improvement, doing good things, or a world religion of our choosing. But not so warns God throughout Scripture such as in 1 Timothy 2:5, “There is one God, and ONE MEDIATOR also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” If we think we can make a Baskin Robbin choice of how we’re reconciled to God, we’re wrong. God has chosen how we can be reconciled to Him, and it is through His Son. Christ Jesus is the ONE MEDIATOR who can reconcile us to God for eternity.
Christ Jesus, We praise You, our MEDIATOR, for making peace between Your Father and our Father.
