“God can’t break His Word. And because His word cannot change, the promise is likewise unchangeable. We who have run for our very lives to God have every reason to grab the promised hope with both hands and never let go. It’ an unbreakable spiritual lifeline, reaching past all appearances right to the very presence of God where Jesus, running on ahead of us, has taken up his permanent post as high priest.”
Hebrews 6:18-20 (MSG)
This is the immutable, rock solid nature of God. The foreseen hope we have in Jesus Christ is completely trustworthy! God, in his perfection and goodness cannot go back on his word. I love the image of the curtain/veil that was torn on crucifixion day. We now have full access and total advocacy through Christs Jesus – complete access to the very presence of God!
It is easy to sometimes forget that we have free access to the father through Christ. We can often find ourselves still bound by religious observation, or ritual that resembles the old covenant. We are now free in Christ Jesus! God doesn’t want our ‘burnt offerings’, he wants our hearts, accepting Jesus as intercessor and enjoying a life walking WITH Him.
Lord, your promise of salvation is unshakeable. Help me to live a life that reflects the freedom we have in Christ Jesus, that others may also be set free.
