Issues… I had BIG ones, beyond what any underling could solve! These kind of issues demanded the involvement and intervention of “the head guy” – and by that I mean “the person at the top” – and that required approved access! He’s the kind of person who has the power and authority to do ANYTHING – know what I mean? But you don’t just want into his office suite, give your name to the receptionist, and walk into His personal office and start making demands!
Fortunately, I knew His Son… Had been personally introduced to Him by a friend. His Son told me, if I ever needed access – if I ever needed an audience with His Father – He’d be my go between! Believe it or not, He even offered to personally help make my case if my appeal was a legitimate one.
Hey, I’ve got to tell you, I never want to abuse that privilege! I never want take advantage of my relationship with His Son (my friend) in inappropriate ways! But Wow! What a privilege!!! On more than one occasion I’ve approached the Father with the Son being my advocate! Let me tell you, it made all the difference in the world! In fact, the Father told me, because of my relationship with His Son, I could have access anytime I needed to, and He assured me I’d be treated like one of His other children!
Just a parable based upon the clear teaching of Scripture… (If you doubt me check out these Scriptures: Matthew 19:26; Luke 18:27; 1 John 2:1; 5:14-15; Romans 8:34; 1 Timothy 2:5; John 14:12-14; Galatians 4:4-7; Ephesians 2:18-19; Hebrews 4:14-16 and many others.)
