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

In Ephesians 2, Paul emphasizes the work of Christ in reconciling both Jews and Gentiles to God. This verse underscores the profound truth that, through Jesus Christ, believers have direct access to the Father by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. It speaks of unity, reconciliation, and the privilege of approaching God with confidence.

This verse highlights the incredible reality that, through Jesus Christ, we have access to the Father. Our access is not based on our merits or efforts but is granted through the unifying work of the Holy Spirit. This access brings with it the privilege of communion, intimacy, and relationship with our Heavenly Father.

Take time daily to approach God in prayer, gratitude, and worship. Recognize the significance of this access, allowing it to deepen your relationship with Him. May the understanding of this divine privilege shape your perspective, actions, and the way you interact with others.


Lord, thank You for giving me access to the Father. Help me to fully grasp the depth of this privilege. May my heart be drawn into closer communion with You, and may my life reflect the transformative power of this access in my relationship with others. In Jesus’ name, amen.
