Every Day with God


Today’s Scripture: Exodus 25-27
Read it online at the Bible Gateway: (NIV) (NASB) (KJV) (The Message)

“My heart is steadfast, O God; I will sing and make music with all my soul.” – Psalm 108:1

Today’s passage in Exodus, describing the tabernacle and the Holy of Holies, is a reminder of all that God has done to make it possible for us to have fellowship with Him. In the tabernacle, the veil separated the holy place from the most holy place. And into that Holy of Holies went the high priest once a year. This veil was the very one that was torn from top to bottom when Jesus Christ died on the cross, indicating that the way now was open for the likes of you and me to enter into that close, intimate communion with God that for centuries was reserved for the high priest alone. It took the death of the Son of God to make that intimate fellowship possible.

Another special feature in the temple was a courtyard enclosed with hangings of the finest linens. The court was fifty yards long and twenty-five yards wide. This was the court David longed for and into which the people of God entered with praise and thanksgiving. The court could only hold a few worshipers. But thanks be to God, in the New Testament times the enclosure was taken down, and today there is room for everyone who calls on the name of the Lord Jesus.

Tomorrow, when your alarm goes off, remember that Jesus Christ died to make it possible for you to come directly into the presence of the Lord, a privilege that once was reserved for a special few. Thank God that today there is room for every heart that longs to enter the place of prayer.

Prayer

Lord, thank You for that most precious of privileges–the priesthood of the believer, that gives me perpetual access to Your holy presence. Amen.

To Ponder

Many Christians are missing out on one of their greatest privileges as children of God–a daily quiet time with their heavenly Father.
