In Him and through faith in Him we may enter God’s presence with boldness and confidence. —Ephesians 3:12

            Because we are in Christ Jesus (II Corinthians 5:17) it is through Him (John 14:6) that we can enter boldly into the very presence of God! —– “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16).  Are you and I doing that? —“You do not have because you do not ask God. (James 4:2)

            Jesus encouraged us to come in prayer through His Name, in His authority, since we have no authority of our own. We live in His authority. We come to the throne in His authority. This is the only way we have access to the “throne of grace.” It is at the “throne of grace” that we obtain mercy. It is here also that we find “grace in time of need.”   Why would we not come into His presence?   We are desperately needy people on a daily basis. We cannot live without Him. We need His fellowship, His input, His strength… we need Him moment by moment, day by day, year by year until we see Him face to face. Until then, let us “enter God’s presence with boldness and confidence” in the authority of our Lord Jesus. Yes, let us do so!

Yes, Dear Father may I come boldly into Your presence by the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son, Jesus. This is the only way I can enter and I am grate that Jesus opened up the way to do so.
