Learning to Sit at His Feet

The Cross

I love the cross; I love that when Jesus died on the cross, the veil in the “Holy of Holies” was torn in two. “And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, He gave up His spirit. At that movement the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom” (Matthew 27:50-51). That moment gave us complete access to our Lord in the “Holy of Holies”!

Now “we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus, by the new and living way which He opened for us through the veil, that is, through His flesh” (Hebrews 10:19-20).

His act of love at the cross, that paid the price for our sin, gives us the moments we live for today–moments in His presence! Let us come to Him boldly, because He wants us to be with Him. Let us come to Him full of the love He showed us at the cross. Let us be with Him today. We have access. He is waiting!

Enjoy time “to be with Him”:
1) Take a moment to re-read Matthew 27:50-51 and Hebrews 10:19-20.
2) Sit, close your eyes, be still, and “gaze upon the cross” while listening for His voice.
3) Thank God for the cross, His presence, and your access to Him today.
