“Jesus is not simply our go-between or our middle-man, though he is that! He is our access. He does more than just relay our messages. Jesus brings us with him into his Father’s house. He sets for each of us a place at our Father’s family table. Or to put it another way, with Jesus, He doesn’t just speak in our place–we speak in His. There are no notes, no emmissaries, no representatives. Just the words, “Our Father,” from our lips to God’s ears. [Jesus said,] ‘In that day you will ask in my name, and I do not say to you that I will ask the Father on your behalf; for the Father himself loves you,'” –Dr. Peter Scaer, Kramer Chapel Sermon, 7/24/15
