“And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost.
And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from top to bottom.”
Mark 15:37, 38
Jesus died on the cross so He could repair the bridge that had been destroyed in the beginning when Adam sinned.
When Adam sinned we were separated from God and that face to face intimate relationship was gone.
The new way of communication was a high priest who was the only one allowed into God’s presence, once a year.
So imagine having a need and not being able to pray directly to God. No matter what you were facing, you had to go to the high priest and tell him what you were going through, not God.
It’s so easy to take what we have been given for granted. But let’s not forget how privileged and blessed we are, to be able to enter God’s presence! We don’t need to wait for anyone if we are going through hard times. We can go boldly before His throne. We have been given an all access pass into His presence.
Because of what Jesus did, the door is open to us, not closed. The enemy would like us to believe that our sins disqualify us from entering God’s presence. He uses guilt and condemnation to achieve that purpose. But the door is wide open for us to run boldly into His presence to receive mercy and forgiveness.
Let’s not shrink back and try to go at life alone when the door is wide open for us. If we need help, the door is open. If we need strength, the door is open. For whatever we need, His door is open. He wants us to go to Him. That’s why the door is open.
You have an all access pass into God’s presence and not a day’s visa so use it!
On another note, I have started another blog. The blog was inspired by my other passion, children.
I have been serving in my church’s children’s ministry for fifteen plus years and still going on strong.
I will be talking about the experiences I have, lessons learned and mistakes made. The blog will also be focused on parents so I will be creating content for them too. I will posting bible lessons I have created, games I have played with children, activity sheets I have created and much more. So if you are a parent, or are serving in children’s ministry or you work with children then this blog is for you. I have left the link down below so head over there and follow me. I would appreciate it much.
Bless you friends.
