In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.
Christ bought for us the ability to stand clean before our God. There is now no more guilt, no more condemnation, and no more fear.
When starting a new project or activity, if you know that you are prepared, there is a sense of freedom and confidence. No matter how difficult the task is that you have chosen, there is no fear, only excitement and anticipation.
That’s how it is with the Lord. He has provided us with all that we need to approach the throne of a holy God. Equipped with that knowledge, we can put forth the faith that draws us near to His matchless presence. As His Spirit moves upon ours, we can be free from the worry of shame, humiliation, or judgment.
Spend time with the Lord today. Approach the throne of grace with the confidence that comes from knowing that your sins are forgiven and that you are a new creation in Christ Jesus. Find in His presence the freedom and confidence that God promises to His children. Then take what you receive and live it out in the world around you.
