“And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost. And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom. And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God” Mark 15:37-39, KJV.
The veil in the temple covered the holiest place where the ark of the covenant and God dwelt. The high priest once a year to offer a sacrifice for man’s sin. He had to be a holy man, living upright before the Lord. The veil was thick and dark, representing the barrier of sin that separated us from the Father. No one was able to go beyond the veil and have access the Father except him.
If you’ve received Jesus into your heart as your Savior, your great and mighty high priest who was without sin, gave his life once for all, and when he did, the veil was torn from top to bottom. There is no more barrier of sin between you and the Father. There’s no barrier between receiving His promises and an eternal inheritance. Because of what Jesus did, don’t allow what you have done to make you believe or feel anything else. Don’t make your own veil. The veil was forever torn and you are redeemed through Christ Jesus.
You are right before God, free to walk with God, reach out to God, be empowered by Him, and live for Him with no condemnation. Because of Jesus, there’s no more veil.
Prayer: Thank You Father. Thank You for giving Jesus for all my sin and the veil is torn. Help me to tear any veils in my own life from top to bottom. I am righteous and I have access to the Father because of it. It’s a Good Friday! It’s good every day because of the price Jesus paid for me that I could not. I will live free in the Lord today. Hallelujah! In Jesus’ name, Amen!
