Two brief but astonishing thoughts today.
“He saved others; he cannot save himself.”
We know this to be: “He saved others; he would not save himself.”
Think about that. How does it amp up the praise level in your worship?
“And the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom.”
This massive partition that had been in place for centuries…that separated humans from the Holy of Holies…is ripped from top to bottom, as if God had taken it in His own hands like a mere sheet of paper and pulled the halves apart.
God’s gracious, mighty object lesson to us on that magnificent, sorrowful, victorious day…there will be no more separation. Grace has opened the way for us to come boldly.
Think about that, too. It will change any thoughts of hesitancy.
Why not pray right now? He “ever lives” for this.
