One of the most amazing things about the work that God did for us through Christ is this. We have access to the throne of grace.
No longer must we go through a priest to have access to God. No longer must we go through any person to access to God’s grace.
Listen to what it says in Hebrews 8:1-2 today.
Now the point in what we are saying is this: we have such a high priest, one who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven, a minister in the holy places, in the true tent that the Lord set up, not man.
We each have access to God through our high priest, Jesus Christ. He is seated at God’s right hand, interceding for us, pulling for us, there for us.
Each of us have access to Him. Each of us have direct access to Him. Directly. Through no one else.
You have access to God today. You don’t have to go through me. Or any other preacher or teacher.
You have all the access to God that you need.
You really don’t need me to have access to God. I’m here to love, teach, preach, care, pastor, be a friend, and lead. As many of your pastor, and many of your friend, and for some of y’all, just a dude on the internet, I’m here to help you in your walk with God.
But you don’t need me (or any other preacher) to have access to God.
You can stop right now. At this moment. And pray. And God hears you.
You can go directly to Him right now.
That is awesome. The God of the universe hears your prayers. And you have access to Him.
Today, may we take advantage of this great blessing that we have. And may we turn to Him in this, and all, moments.
