Zechariah 3:6-7; another admonition…obedience brings responsibility and reward

Now, continuing in the vision of Joshua the high priest, the Angel of the Lord admonishes this Joshua to walk in God’s ways.  Joshua was saved by the mercy of the Lord and now he is admonished to grow.  As Joshua grows then the Lord will allow him to “perform My (God’s) service, govern My house, have charge of My courts and have free access among those who are standing here””.  Assuming those “standing here” (הָעֹמְדִ֖ים הָאֵֽלֶּה)  are those among the heavenly court where Joshua found himself in this vision, what an awesome promise of open access to the throne of God to empower our walks simply because in His grace and mercy he has “cleaned us up”.  From tattered robes to royal access to the throne of God, forgiven and made new.  This is the faith life the God of the universe calls us to.
