{Hebrews 10:21-22; NLT}

And since we have a great High Priest who rules over God’s house, let us go right into the presence of God with sincere hearts fully trusting him. For our guilty consciences have been sprinkled with Christ’s blood to make us clean, and our bodies have been washed with pure water.

Somewhere, sometime, somehow you got tangled up in garbage, and you've been avoiding God. You've allowed a veil of guilt to come between you your Father. You wonder if you could ever feel close to God again. The message of the torn flesh is you can. God is not avoiding you. God is resisting you. The curtain is down, the door is open, and God invites you in.

Don't trust your conscience. Trust the cross. The blood has been split and the veil has been spilt. You are welcome in God's presence.

Max Lucado, He Chose the Nails, p. 85

Questions to consider:

  • Why do we avoid God?
  • How can we know that God wants to have a relationship with us?
  • What hope do you find in the cross?
