Access to God

Ephesians 2:18, “For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.”

When some think of God, they think of Him as so old guy who is disconnected for everything.  He is thought to be aloof.  He is sometimes thought to be non-existent as He does not “talk” like people expect.  There is access to God through one way.

For through Him.  The “Him” is Jesus.  Jesus, through His life and subsequent death on the cross, made the Way to God for us.  Jesus took our sin and made it as if we never had sin so that God the Father would see us as He sees Himself.  We cannot come to God without Jesus.  Unless Jesus intercedes, we do not have access to God.

We both have access.  We have access to God through prayer.  We do not have to wait for someone us to talk to God for us.  We do not have to write a letter and send it to God.  There is no email program to communicate with God.  We can talk to God whenever we want.  It can be formal like a prayer or just saying a few words to God in our day-to-day life.  Either way, we have access to God because He always hears us, regardless if we get an answer or not.  We can speak to God about anything because He is our Father and wants to hear our concerns.

By one Spirit.  When Jesus left the Earth, He left the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of God.  The Spirit lives inside of us, helping us with life.  Choices that we need to make are helped by the Spirit of God.  The Spirit is no less than God the Father or Jesus, as they are all part of the triune God, or three-in-one.  All equal.  The Spirit is that voice in your head telling you what is right and wrong.  It is our choice to choose what the Spirit says.

To the Father.  God is accessible.  He is our Father in Heaven.  He cares just like a father should.  Unlike earthly fathers, God will never let us down.  He will never be too busy for us.  He will not get stuck at work, on a phone call, or sucked into a television show.  He is always there and always attentive to our needs.  He created us and has an active role in what it takes for us to live.  What we need is God the Father for all aspects of life.  We need access to God because He is our life source, now and forever in Heaven above,

Heavenly Father,

Thank You for being our Father.  You are perfect and we love You.  Thank You always for Your Son, who died to give us access to You.  We would be lost with You.  We would never get to live with You apart from what Your Son did on the cross.  Heaven is ours if we only believe in You and get to know You.  Salvation is there for all if we are willing to accept it.  Help those who are on the fence about knowing You to know You.  Help them so that many more may go to Heaven and be with You forever.

In Your name we pray,

Amen
