Adam was created for the middle, a representative of God in the earth, His regent. All creation saw in him as the image of God. From that place, he fell. And only the last Adam, coming to resecure the broken middle, could reconnect creation to mankind.
Jesus came to the middle to die praying from the middle cross. God wants to move us to the middle, connecting lost and hurting people to God. This is the central focus of intercession, the reconcilation of men and women to God, the Father, through Christ, by the enabling work of the Spirit.
