He who searches the hearts knows what is on the Spirit’s mind, because he makes intercession for the saints according to God.
For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me.
For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers,
nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from God’s love which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
For him who knew no sin he made to be sin on our behalf, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
I pray not that you would take them from the world, but that you would keep them from the evil one.
But now he has obtained a more excellent ministry, by as much as he is also the mediator of a better covenant, which on better promises has been given as law.
For this reason he is the mediator of a new covenant, since a death has occurred for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first covenant, that those who have been called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.
