The Code

All the doors to our unit at work have a security code.  This is to protect our mother's privacy and our babies' security.  No one can enter the unit who does not have the access code, or whom we do not allow to enter by unlocking the door for them.

As we become familiar with the family from each patient, and they approach our main doors, we can see them on the security camera.  We often recognize their faces and have our fingers on the lock-button before they ever pick up the phone to ask for entry.  We have come to know them and they gain access, not based on who they are but based on their relationship to the mother.

There is no way we can ever access God in and of ourselves.  "And He said, Thou canst not see My face: for there shall no man see Me, and live," (Exodus 33:20.)  To access God, we must have a mediator.  We need someone to go between us and God.

Thankfully, God has provided such a mediator for us, the Man-Christ Jesus.  We are accepted by God based not upon who we are, or what we have done, but solely based upon our relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.  His character, His righteousness, His merits alone gain us access "through the door" unto God.

1 Timothy 2: 3-6

"For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men,  
the man Christ Jesus; 
Who gave Himself a ransom for all,"
