How valuable to know that union with our Lord means nothing can keep us from being heard by the Father. It simply does not matter how we feel or how besieged we are by temptation. We know that we can approach God’s throne by virtue of the fact that Christ faced and defeated every temptation for us…. We come through Him, and it is His life that God sees when we seek refuge from our sins in Him.
