“But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away [from God], have been brought near through the blood of Christ…For through him we have access to the Father by the Spirit.” Ephesians 2:13, 18
Today, we let so many barriers divide us as a people: race, age, gender, political and religious beliefs, intelligence levels, economic status, and even the way people look and dress. Christ has removed all these barriers! In love and obedience to the Father, Christ shed His blood on the cross for our every sin, and through him, we all have equal access to the Father. The barrier of sin has been removed in Christ. And because of His sacrifice, we are being built into a holy temple with Jesus as the cornerstone. Nothing in this life can keep you away from the love of our Holy God!
When was the last time you thanked God for the access you have to Him because of Jesus?
