“Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom, and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split” (Matthew 27:51). NKJV
When the Lord Jesus fully satisfied the holy and righteous demands of His Father on the cross, He dismissed His spirit and died for our sins. Immediately a miracle took place in the temple. The incredibly large curtain, the veil that separated the Holy of Holies from the rest of the temple, was torn from top to bottom. Only the high priest had been permitted to pass beyond this veil once each year (Exodus 30:10; Hebrews 9:7). Now the way to the Lord was opened for believers to come boldly unto His throne (Hebrews 4:16). What an amazing Savior! He took our place and bore our shame. He opened the way that we would never have to face the wrath of a holy, offended God. I am so very grateful and overwhelmed with such an amazing Savior. How about you?
For today: I am thankful that the way into the Father’s presence has been made possible through the Lord Jesus. There is no other way.
