Do you have Jesus, or are you lost and without hope?
That at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation,
Ephesians 2:12-14 New King James Version
THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY’S VERSE(s)…
God’s Word says that though we were once worldly and far off we can draw near through the Blood of Jesus. That’s the only way – there is NO other way to God! IF someone is telling you there is another way they are a liar and represent the devil, he wants you to think there are many ways to God. In fact God says in His Word that we can actually come boldly before His Throne! Though we were once strangers to God, Jesus, when He is your Lord, has made a way for us. He has broken down the wall that once separated us from God. We now have access through the Blood of Jesus to the ‘Most High God’ (El Elyown). Notice however, that the access is only through Jesus. There is no other way to gain access to God the Father, than through Jesus Christ, No Other way, not Budda, Alla, or some great spirit in the sky! I didn’t say that, God’s Word said that. Don’t let anyone tell you anything different. Just tell them “It is written!”
Most High God, thank You for access to You through Your son Jesus and the shedding of His Blood for me. Thank You Lord that though I was once separated from you and was far away You are drawing me nearer and nearer each day through the precious Blood of Jesus. I thank You Lord that Jesus has removed that veil that was once separating me from You and that I can now come near by my faith in Jesus. That I can come boldly to the Throne of God and receive mercy.
In Jesus’ Holy name and by the power of His Blood I pray.
