The Curtain

Mt 27:51 At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split.


What a privilege it is to enter into the presence of our God.  When they worshiped God before Jesus died on the cross there was a heavy curtain separating the Holy of Holies from all mankind.  The only one who could enter was the priest who was chosen for that year.  He could enter only once in the year under very stringent conditions.  When Jesus died on the cross for our sins, that curtain was torn from top to bottom.  The only way that could happen was by the hand of God.  It is because of Jesus’ death on the cross and the tearing of the curtain that allows us into God’s presence.  We have that access any time, any place, under any conditions and as often as we would like.  The question is how often do we want to be in God’s presence.
