Matthew 27:65. Pilate said to them, “Take a a guard of soldiers. Go and make it as secure as you can.”

Pilot wanted to do everything possible to keep Jesus out of this world. So many still try to keep Jesus out. He is kept out of governments, schools places of work, homes and even churches. So many don’t want Him in their lives at all. Many only want Him in their life when the need something from Him. Many think they can slip Him in and out of their lives at their will. As we will celebrate tomorrow, nothing can keep Jesus out. But Jesus will not force His way into anyone’s life. He is there, calling us, knocking in the doors of our minds and hearts and waiting to be welcomed. He wants to be in all of our being, all of our life. Our question is are we allowing Him complete access to all of us and all we do, think and say? On this between day, a day between eternal death and eternal life, let us meditate on areas of our own lives where we have shut Him out and ask His Holy Spirit to cleans out those areas and fill us with Jesus.
