For there is one God and one intermediary between God and humanity, Christ Jesus, himself human. — 1 Tim 2:5 NET
Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, he likewise shared in their humanity.
“Turn to me so you can be delivered, all you who live in the earth’s remote regions! For I am God, and I have no peer.”
We have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous One.—But now in Christ Jesus you who used to be far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace—and he entered once for all into the most holy place not by the blood of goats and calves but by his own blood, and so he himself secured eternal redemption. And so he is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the eternal inheritance he has promised, since he died to set them free from the violations committed under the first covenant.—So he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.
Heb 2:14, Isa 45:22, 1 John 2:1, Eph 2:13-14, Heb 9:12, Heb 9:15, Heb 7:25
I am depressed. — Ps 42:6 NET
You keep completely safe the people who maintain their faith, for they trust in you. Trust in the Lord from this time forward, even in Yah, the Lord, an enduring protector!
Throw your burden upon the Lord, and he will sustain you.—For he did not despise or detest the suffering of the oppressed; he did not ignore him; when he cried out to him, he responded.—Is anyone among you suffering? He should pray.
“Do not let your hearts be distressed or lacking in courage.”—“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Look at the birds in the sky: They do not sow, or reap, or gather into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren’t you more valuable than they are?”—“Do not continue in your unbelief, but believe.”—“And remember, I am with you always.”
Isa 26:3-4, Ps 55:22, Ps 22:24, Jas 5:13, John 14:27, Matt 6:25-26, John 20:27, Matt 28:20
