The next in our series on the promises God makes to us if we believe: free access to Him. If you had not trusted in Jesus and received His adoption, you would be like everyone else in the world - standing on the outside looking in. You wouldn’t have that relationship with the Father that we all too often take for granted, nor the privileges of that relationship.

We consider three things: 

  • Adoption into the family of God gives you free access to God. 
  • It makes your worship acceptable. 
  • More specifically, it makes your prayers acceptable.

If you don’t know Him, He won’t receive you, your worship or works, nor will He necessarily answer your prayers. If you want these blessings, you must be His child. If you are to become His child, then you must turn from your sins and trust in Christ. He will receive you as His own Son. He will love you, listen to your prayers and care for you now and throughout eternity. Don’t stand on the outside looking in - trust in Jesus and enter His family.
