BOLDNESS IN CHRIST
In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him. (Ephesians 3:12)
“Righteousness gives you boldness in your prayer life.” – Mark Hankins
God does not want you dragging, crawling, or sliding into His presence. He wants you to come walking in as a child of God. You have a “standing” with God that the angels do not have. God wants you to walk in saying, “Abba Father, Daddy God, You are my Father, and I am your child.” When you come walking into His presence in Christ and through the blood of Jesus, God cannot find anything wrong with you — not even a trace of sin. You are justified in Christ.
In Him, you have boldness when you pray. You are not a beggar. You come into God’s presence with confidence saying, “I am an heir of God and a joint-heir with Jesus Christ. Father God, I know when I pray, I have this confidence, that whatever I ask for, You hear me, and I know I have the petitions I desire of You.”
We get boldness in the presence of God. We have access, or a way into the presence of God in Christ. We must climb up in Christ by faith declaring, “I am in Him.”
Confession: I am in Christ! I have access with boldness, confidence, and assurance into the presence of God!
