4/12/14 Daily Devotion

Matthew 27:50-51 And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split.

The curtain in the temple separated the main area from the Holy of Holies. The chief priest was the only one allowed to enter the Holy of Holies, and this was done only within the guise of regulations handed down by God. Entering was so regulated that an entrance in the Holy of Holies by an unclean priest brought about his demise. When Jesus gave up His spirit, the curtain tore in two, thus altering who can come into the presence of God. From that moment forward, it was no longer the job of the priest to stand before God on behalf of man. From that moment forward, all men seeking God were given the opportunity to come forth. From that moment forward, everything changed for the better.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me reach for Your presence. Help me seek Your face.
