If there is one mediator that is needed to bring two people together, why were they separated in the first place? 

The answer can be contained in a word: sin. 

In the presence of a holy God, none of us are good enough to be accepted by Him.

For all our good intentions and good deeds, we are still — by nature — sinful.

But thanks be to God that His desire is for all people to be saved.

Just as God sent Jesus into this world to reconcile man to Himself, He has also given us the ministry of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:18-19).

Who can you bring the message of reconciliation to today? Or is there someone you first need to be reconciled to?
