Abounding in Christ May 02 of Abounding in Christ

Jesus is the door, the gateway

Jesus is the door, the gateway to the Heavenly Father; no one can come to the Father except through Jesus Christ.

Brethren, it is not as some teach that Jesus stands between us and God; but instead He is our bridge to God;He escorts us to the Father's presence.

It is possible than because of Jesus Christ's divine assistance (grace) for us actually to come into the presence of God the Father and have His countenance revealed to us.

Jesus doesn't hide us from the Father but brings us to the Father.

Without Jesus Christ we cannot know nor can we see the Father; but Jesus Christ is able to bring us to the Father that we can both know and see Him.

For this cause Jesus Christ came into the world to reconcile us to the Father.

Brethren, let Jesus Christ than complete His work in your life of knowing God.
