One of Us, For All of Us
A great mystery of our human experience is that God has brought about our salvation through one of us – a human being. It was one of us – Adam – who brought sin and death into the world. It is one of us – Jesus – the last Adam (1 Cor. 15:21), who brought forgiveness and life (Rom. 5:17). It is one of us who has stood in the gap between us and God (1 Timothy 2:5); one of us whose obedience and sacrifice pleased God. He was one of us – for the rest of us!
