A Voice from the Past - Matthew Henry

All the glory that passes from fallen man to God, so as to be accepted of him, must go through the hands of the Lord Jesus, in whom alone it is that our persons and performances are, or can be, pleasing to God. Of his righteousness therefore we must make mention, even of his only, who, as he is the Mediator of all our prayers, so he is, and I believe will be to eternity; the Mediator of all our praises.

Mathew Henry, 1662 - 1714, Matthew Henry's Commentary, Romans 16:25-27, II, 2, (Fleming H. Revell Company, Vol. VI, p. 504)

What difference does it make that Christ is our mediator? What impact does it have on our life?
