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.

    Children of GOD, be not deceived by the imaginations of the wicked: I will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs and I will make the rivers islands, and I will dry up the pools. Be thankful that GOD is your shelter: and that your riches are eternal, in heaven.
