Confidence in God

Do we really comprehend how Jesus made a close relationship with God the Father possible?


2 Corinthians 3:4

St. Paul speaks about confidence. His trust in God that is possible “through” Jesus. The insertion of Jesus points to the fact that only Jesus can bring forth that close relationship with God.

Jesus reveals so much about God the Father. Only by Jesus do we know that God is Father and can call God “our Father.” Jesus makes this close relationship possible which before Christ was unimaginable.

To know Jesus is to know God the Father. God the Son became human and walked and talked among us. We are able to identify with Jesus because Jesus became one of us.

Yet, Jesus remained divine and so when we get to know Jesus we are also getting to know God. With Jesus we have an intimate human bond we can relate to while also being ascended into a higher bond with God.

Let us relate our joy or troubles to Jesus today knowing that Jesus went through such emotions and understands us. Let us then hear how Jesus approaches what we shared through his divine lens. Let us grow more confident in God today because of Jesus.
