I’ve decided to change the name of my blog now that I have a clearer idea of what I want it to focus on. “My Train of Thought” was pretty general. I want the focus of my blog to be my relationship with God through the sacrificial death of His Son, Jesus Christ. I want to look at what life can be like as a child of God, and I have been meditating on what that means.
I’m finding that my relationship with God and any “entitlement” I have as His child comes down to this: it wouldn’t be possible without Christ. Unless I believed that “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16 NIV), I would have no relationship with God, no access to my heavenly Father.
Jesus is my mediator, my bridge, my intercessor. He alone is the way, the truth and the life. The only way I can approach the throne of God is with Jesus. Because of Jesus, I can not only approach the throne of God, but do so boldly! I’ve done nothing and can do nothing on my own to deserve it, but all I need to do is point to Christ Himself and say, “I’m with Him.” And I know that if anyone asks, Jesus will smile and nod. “Yes,” He’ll say. “She’s with me. I paid the price for her.”
What’s more, I know that He’s with me.
