The Door Of Access

And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near. For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.

Ephesians 2:17-18

If the Bible says that none are righteous, that we all fall short of the glory of God, and are unqualified to dwell in the presence of God in His kingdom, how does anyone get there? Access to God comes ONLY on account of the work He does as the Good Shepherd. God took the form of flesh as Jesus Christ, to preach peace to us who were afar off. Jesus’ “preaching” consisted of the teaching He gave, to identify Himself as God in flesh, and the fulfillment of the Father’s promises documented in scripture. It’s the revelation of Jesus that draws the children of God to Him, granting us access into His glory, even though we don’t deserve to be there.
