The Way To The Father’s Presence by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

The Way To The Father's Presence by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the
truth, and the life: no man cometh unto
the Father, but by me (John 14:6).

The saddest day in human history was when
Adam, having sinned against God, was driven
away from the presence of God, together
with his wife, Eve.

Man had been in fellowship with God, being in
God’s image and likeness. The Bible says God sent an
angel with a flaming sword to stay at the gate of the
garden to disallow Adam from re-entering the Garden
of Eden.

Suddenly, man (Adam) discovers something: the
rich fellowship that he had with God was over. That was
the beginning of religion. Man began to do everything
he could to get that divine presence again.

All the religions of the world today are seeking
the same thing: the lost presence. Man had no way to
get back into that presence, until Jesus came. He made
a startling statement. He said, “I am the WAY…no one
comes to the Father, except by me!” (John 14:6). He’s
the way to “the lost presence.”

This was what Adam needed. This was what
Abraham, Moses, the Jewish Priesthood, all needed: the
way to the Father’s presence! Jesus is that way! “By
a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for
us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh” (Hebrews
10:20).

There’s no veil, no separation any more between
us and the Father; He’s brought us into God’s presence, and the Bible says, “In His presence is fullness of joy”
(Psalm 16:11). There’s no joy like what you have in the
presence of God. What a glorious life we have in Christ!

If you haven’t found your way into His presence,
if you’re not yet born again, this is your moment!
There’s no need to wallow in sin, defeat and ignorance
any more. There’s no enmity between you and God
any more. All you have to do is confess the Lordship of
Jesus over your life, and your spirit will be recreated to
begin an exciting life in His presence for eternity.

PRAYER
Dear Father, I’m forever grateful for your
unconditional love, which you’ve lavished on me,
and the awesome privilege of being a bona fide
member of your great family. I enjoy the blessings
and benefits of my oneness with you, conscious of
your glory in my life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
