Daily devotional: Jesus, our Mediator

Scripture
As my vision continued that night, I saw someone like a son of man coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient One and was led into his presence.
Daniel 7:13 NLT

Observation
Vv. 9-10 describe God, the Ancient One (what an awesome title) in all His holiness and splendor. How awesome that my Savior, Jesus, can walk right into the Ancient One's presence. Jesus is our perfect Mediator who allows us to be made right with God even with his blazing holiness. Thanks be to God for His mysterious plan!

Application
Have a healthy understanding and respect for God's holiness and power--don't take Him lightly. And thank Jesus for making it possible to be reconciled with the Ancient One! Recognize Jesus' authority, honor, and sovereignty (v.14).

Prayer
Lord, thank you for your awesome plan of salvation. Thank you for giving us glimpses of You. How awesome that I, a sinner, have been reconciled with You through Your awesome grace in the precious blood of Jesus! You are worthy of all praise. I love you, my Lord and my God.
