Wesley's Notes for Ephesians 3:12


3:12 By whom we have free access - Such as those petitioners have, who are introduced to the royal presence by some distinguished favourite. And boldness - Unrestrained liberty of speech, such as children use in addressing an indulgent father, when, without fear of offending, they disclose all their wants, and make known all their requests.


People's Bible Notes for Ephesians 3:12


Eph 3:12 In whom. In Jesus Christ. We have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him. All, both Jew and Gentile alike, can come boldly to God. Without the revelation of Christ we could hardly know of God of love, who loved to have us come to him.

    That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel: as a Gentile, I was lost and knew nothing of Jesus Christ, but now, Jesus had chosen Paul to minister to Gentile and share the gospel of the Grace of God. Glory be to God for his only begotten Son for the blood that was shed on the cross for our sins and rose from the dead . Amen
