Though we are lost in the sight of God still his love made us a way to come before him. Now we have the privilege to access God’s kingdom by obeying him. The Lord Jesus died in our place and made us free from our sin. He has promised us to deliver from the wrath of God.
Before the ascension, Jesus told his disciples that he will never leave us. But he will always be with us in the form of the Holy Spirit. Now we can boldly say that if our God is with us, who can harm us?
