BIBLE MEDITATION: ?Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an High Priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.? Hebrews 6:19-20
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: The Old Testament temple had three parts: the outer court, the inner court, and the innermost court. The innermost court was called the ?inner sanctum? or the ?Holy of Holies.? Only the priest could go in there. Once a year, the high priest would enter the Holy of Holies to make atonement for the people. He would lift up a corner of the heavy veil and slip under. Then, he would sprinkle blood upon the Mercy Seat. If anyone went in without the blood, there was sudden death. When the veil of the temple was torn at Jesusí death, it was torn from top to bottom so no one would think a person did this. By His death, Jesus was saying that there were no more animal sacrifices necessary. Now, every believer can enter the Holy of Holies.
ACTION POINT: Have you been there today? It?s time to enter in and praise Him for sending His Son to make atonement for your sin. It?s time to bow before His mercy seat and thank Him for His grace towards you that saved you from eternal separation from God?s presence.
