Invitation

Ephesians 3:12 NLT

Because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence.

Our Lord always accepts our invitations to come. Sadly, we don’t always accept his invitations. At his invitation we “can…”; audience is possible only through his faithful, finished work. “Now…” is always a good time, regardless. “Boldly and confidently…” because we know the one who opens the way.

The invitation is through him. The permission to come is by him. The time to come is availed to us from him.

To refuse to come, or to come fearfully to our Lord denies all of this.
