12 In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.
12 In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.
12 in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through our faith in him.
12 When we trust in him, we're free to say whatever needs to be said, bold to go wherever we need to go.
12 in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through faith in Him.
12 Because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God's presence.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Ephesians 3:12
Commentary on Ephesians 3:8-12
(Read Ephesians 3:8-12)
Those whom God advances to honourable employments, he makes low in their own eyes; and where God gives grace to be humble, there he gives all other needful grace. How highly he speaks of Jesus Christ; the unsearchable riches of Christ! Though many are not enriched with these riches; yet how great a favour to have them preached among us, and to have an offer of them! And if we are not enriched with them it is our own fault. The first creation, when God made all things out of nothing, and the new creation, whereby sinners are made new creatures by converting grace, are of God by Jesus Christ. His riches are as unsearchable and as sure as ever, yet while angels adore the wisdom of God in the redemption of his church, the ignorance of self-wise and carnal men deems the whole to be foolishness.
