[The Glory Unveiled]
In him [Christ Jesus] and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence. ( Ephesians 3:12 )
When Adam and Eve sinned through disobedience to God’s counsel, they hid themselves because they lost the freedom and confidence to approach God (Genesis 3:8-10). The barrier of sin had put them in that situation where they could not boldly meet with God even when God came looking for them. And from their time until the realities of the Cross of Christ crystallized, all of humanity became victims of their error. But thanks to God, at the Cross a remedy was made available to us by which our relationship with God could be restored. But even though the remedy is available, many are still held behind the curtains of condemnation as a result of ignorance [unawareness]. They are still unable to approach the Father of all Lights. The reason is found in the verse above. We come into fellowship with God only in Christ. And through our residence in Christ by faith, we are able to confidently approach God. There is no other substitute for this statute. There is no way around it but through this institution. So Romans 8:1, says there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ. “In Christ” is the only grounds that permits freedom and access to God. And in Him, we are shielded against the world’s system that is designed to fight our relationship with God. We have access now to God in Christ through faith. Glory!
