Because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence.”
Ephesians 3:12 NLT
Do you get that? Because of what Christ Jesus has done we can come directly into the presence of God. WOW!!! Jesus substitutionary sacrifice has opened the throne room of heaven and allows us to enter. Only the spotless, matchless, sinless blood of the Lamb could accomplish such a privilege. Do you even understand that God waits with anticipation for you to come to Him? Through the blood and body of Christ Jesus we have forgiveness. When we acknowledge our sinfulness, repent of our sin, accept Jesus as the payment of that sin, and receive God's forgiveness we, then, can enter boldly into God's throne room.
“So then, since we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to what we believe. This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.” Hebrews 4:14-16 NLT
Come into His presence. Spend time with your Father. Seek His face, not just His hand. He simply wants you to love Him and honor Him. He waits to hear you call His name. Is there something you need today? Ask Him. ““Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.” Matthew 7:7 NLT
Come before Him in Jesus name!!! He's ready to answer.
