Lent ‘11

 

"Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom"

Matthew 27:51.

The veil is symbolic of the body of Jesus!

The veil of the temple was torn.
"But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away."2 Corinthians 3:16.

You have direct access to God Almighty-

– because of the sacrifice Jesus made!

How encouraging is it that you have permission to enter the presence of the Lord at any time as you walk daily through life?

We must always be thankful that-

God took us out of sin and shame, and made us His children.

But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the

blood of Christ.Ephesians 2:13.

Stephen Neill lists four ways we have access directly with God:

We have access to God’s throne of grace.Romans 5:2; Hebrews 4:16.
We have access to God who is sovereign, and can approach Him as a child does a father. Ephesians 2:18; Luke 11:11-13; Romans 8:15.
We have access to Jesus Christ. And it’s by His blood that we are confident to approach Him.1 Timothy 2:5; Hebrews 10:19.
We have access to God by our faith and prayer.Romans 5:2; Ephesians 3:12; Hebrews

10:22.

Thank God for the privilege of having immediate access to Him-

– because of Jesus’ death on the cross.

Pray that you would always be a personal witness of the changes He’s made in your life to the world.

Determine to “declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his

wonderful light” to those in your life who may not know Jesus.1 Peter 2:9-10.
