經 節： 弟兄們，我們既因耶穌的血得以坦然進入至聖所，是藉著祂給我們開了一條又新又活的路，從幔子經過，這幔子就是祂的身體。（希伯來書十章19∼20節）
brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new
and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His
flesh. (Hebrews 10:19-20)
Our generation lacks a sense of wonder and
reverence toward God. We want to bring God down to our level, to the
commonplace. He is God! Though we have direct access to Him as His children, we
ought never to forget that this access was purchased with the precious blood of
His only Son. No one who truly understands this ever enters God’s presence
without a sense of holy awe. No one who comprehends the incredible price paid
at Calvary ever takes his relationship with God for granted.
We will never truly understand God and the
way He relates to us unless we first comprehend a true sense of His holiness
and His demand for holiness among His people. If we are in God’s presence, we
are on holy ground! We must never act as if it were God’s purpose to make us
successful. It would be preposterous for us to become impatient when God does
not answer our prayers when and how we think He should! He is God, we are not!
As you meditate on the price Jesus paid to
give you access to the Father, you will come to treasure your prayer times with
Him. Worship will become a privilege you seize with gratitude. Scripture will
be dear to you as you strive to be holy in all that you do (2 Cor. 7:1; 1 Pet.
If you have lost your wonder at the
incredible gift of salvation that has been given to you, you need to revisit
the cross and witness your Savior suffering for you. How priceless God’s gift
of salvation is!
