Who is Jesus? Why do I need him? I will only need Jesus when I'm dying! These are the thoughts and questions on most of our hearts and minds at one point or another through our lives. In the readings today we see how Jesus is our mediator. He is the intercessor between us and God. He mediates – by begging mercy for our sins to the father. So thus Jesus is the son of God, and we need him to mediate for us to forgive us our sins. As for the question of us meeting God only on our deathbed, Jesus gives us life now also abundant life. We need him today so that we can be with him tomorrow in eternity.
