A Daily Devotion for Thursday, March 16
Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.
This Lenten season I have been reminded over and over of the torn curtain. The torn curtain allows us access to the Most Holy Place, access to God. Through the breaking of His body on the cross, the barrier (sin) between God and His people was torn in two. This should make us bold in our faith!
A Lenten Haiku
Broken on the cross,
His body brings us to Him,
Rending the curtain.
Holy Lord, "thank you" does not feel like enough. You have given us our very lives and the promise to be with you for eternity. You have given us Jesus, your son, and the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us. I am yours. Amen
