In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence. – Ephesians 3:12
We can approach God without fear and trembling. Through the awesome blood of Jesus, we can approach our God as we would our earthly father (or how we are supposed to approach our father since some of us approach him with fear and trembling). We are to approach Him with freedom and confidence like children who love their Dad.
Children don’t keep asking Daddy for the same thing when they know Daddy promised it.
They keep talking about how they already have it, as if it were a done deal.
“Daddy, it is going to be so fun when we ride the roller coaster. I think I will ride the roller coaster first, then have some ice cream…,” they say.
We should be like that with God. What He promises, we need to consider a done deal.
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. – 2 Corinthians 5:21.
Christ was made sin for us, so that we could be in right standing with God.
