Day 350

Today’s Reading – Ephesians


In Christ we have bold and confident access to God through faith in Him.
Ephesians 3:12 CEB

I think that perhaps we have lost all concept of what it means to be holy.

 

We throw the word around a lot with out truly understanding its meaning.

God is Holy.  Actually, scripture says of God that He is Holy, Holy, Holy.

That is meant to create an image of total perfection.

God is perfect and as such nothing (absolutely NOTHING) with flaw or imperfection may enter God’s presence.

How then is humankind to ever gain audience with God with all of our flaws?

No matter how hard we try we cannot obtain perfection.

Enter Christ.

In Christ we have bold and confident access to God through faith in Him.

By faith we are made able to access God.

By faith we are granted holiness.

Think about that the next time someone deems something holy!

I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
