Did you know that, as Christians, we have complete access to God? When Jesus Christ was crucified at Calvary, the veil that separated us from a Holy God was torn from top to bottom. Therefore removing that which obstructed our entrance into the Holy of holies.
The one thing that kept us from a personal and intimate relationship with our God, was nailed to the Cross in our place. The roadblock of sin was removed and Jesus bridged the gap between us and our heavenly Father.
Romans 5:8 tells us, "But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
Because of that amazing sacrifice on the Cross, you and I can have a deeply intimate relationship with our Lord. Deeply personal. Deeply meaningful. We can meet Him face-to-face.
We can lay at His feet. Worship Him. Praise Him. Cry out to Him. Pour our hearts out to Him in prayer. And He hears us.
"In my distress, I cried unto the Lord, and He heard me" (Psalm 120:1)
We don't have to wait in line to see God. We don't have to take a number or leave Him a voicemail. There is no having to make an appointment to talk to Him.
We only have to lift our hearts and our eyes to Him on His heavenly Throne and call out His precious Name. Abba...Father...Jesus.
We can go boldly before the Throne of Grace. Reaching up to the One who reaches down and lovingly bestows mercy and grace upon us. We can enter into the divine Presence of a Holy God and He will meet with us in all His glory.
Just a few pics of my grandbabies - minus Silas, who didn't like his costume too much. Ok, not at all... ha!
