Did you know some Bible scholars don’t know why we pray in Jesus name?
Can you imagine appearing in an earthly courtroom without an attorney?
1 Timothy 2:5 KJV says, For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
When we pray in Jesus name we appear before the Heavenly Father with Jesus by our side, an attorney that’s already paid for.
If you enjoy a more figurative explanation and biblical theme read the book of Esther and search the word sceptre in your Holy Bible. If you appeared unbidden before the King of Persia in Esther’s time he would hold out his scepter signifying life. If he withheld it from the petitioner it meant a sentence of death.
Jesus is the sceptre already held out by the Lord God Almighty. If you accept him you shall have eternal life.
With Jesus as our mediator each and every time, we may present ourselves before Jehovah, the Most High and Holy and live.
