Awe-filled but not awful

Because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence. Eph. 3:12

Certainly we should approach God with awe because He is, after all, God. At the same time He is a Friend and a Father who infused His own image into His human creation. He made us eternal souls and reconciles us to Himself is so that we can experience a confident, familiar relationship with Him. Jesus used the word “in” as well as the word “with” to describe this relationship with the Father.

Father, thank you for this awe-filled relationship I experience and enjoy in You and with You.
