There are so many things in life that we don’t have access to.

We see signs that read, “No admittance.” “Employees only.” “Don’t go past this point.”

No access.

That is precisely the way it was with God in the days before Jesus.

In the Temple, a veil separated God from the people and served as a barrier that only the high priest could enter, and then only once a year. But when Jesus was crucified, the ground shook and the veil of the temple that kept everyone out of the Holy of Holies was torn in two.

From the bottom to the top? No. From the top to the bottom. Only God could do that.

Jesus’ death provided our way of access to God.

The writer of Hebrews says that, because of the sacrifice Jesus made on our behalf, we can come with confidence to the throne of grace where we receive mercy and find grace to help in times of need.

Thank Him for the assurance we have that we may enter His presence at any time, anywhere and in any circumstances.

    Loved this so much! Such a wonderful reminder that we are Free, in Him! Fear is not from Him! Living in these times with so many restrictions on everything because of the virus, I found this especially encouraging. Thank you, AllWorship, for not only the blessing of your music, but for these encouraging tidbits, as well! May Blessings, abound from what you do for so many!

    This was so encouraging today. And reminded me of current barriers and obstacles we may all face. But through the sacrifice of what Jesus did for us all we are free in Him and can overcome all things through him. He is the key- No more access denied. I loved this today Thankyou for sharing- such encouragement and brought so much Joy.
