Memory Work:

Q1. Can we save ourselves from sin?
A. No, by our sins we increase our guilt daily.

Q2. How can we be saved?
A. Only by God’s Son, our Mediator.

Q3. Why is God’s Son called the Mediator?
A. He stands between God and sinful man.

Q4. Why does He stand between these two parties?
A. To bring man back to God.

Q5. Did man ask God for a Mediator?
A. No, God freely gave us His Son (John 3:16).


Talking Things Over:

  1. Why do you think the offerings in Leviticus 9:22 were called “sin offerings”?  Why were other offerings called “peace offerings” (Leviticus 3:1)?
  2. In what way did Jesus offer a sacrifice? How was His sacrifice better than animal sacrifices?
  3. Why can’t we remove our own sins and bring ourselves back to God?


Words to Remember:

Enemies of God – in sin, we are God’s enemies.  Because we were enemies of God, we needed a Mediator.
Grace – undeserved favor.  God sent His Son even though we did not deserve Him nor ask for His salvation.
Mediator – One who stands between enemies to bring them together.
