This past week, I attended Transitional-Interim Pastor training at the Georgia Baptist Mission Center. One day, Dr. Robert White, Executive Secretary of the GBM spoke to us briefly. As he finished his remarks, he said, “Get out of your phones..” Then, he gave us his phone number. This is the Executive Secretary of the Convention. He’s pretty significant. Then he said, “If you ever need anything, give me a call.”
I was impressed. I thought it was pretty neat that this man was making himself accessible. Well, 2000 years someone more important than Dr. White or the President or anyone else gave us access to the Lord. That person was Jesus.
As Jesus was about to die, the Bible says the veil in the temple was split in two. The veil was in front of the Holy of Holies, which is where the ark of covenant was. The only person who could go into the Holy of Holies was the great High Priest and he could only go in once a year on the Day of Atonement. But, when the veil was split in two, it made it possible for anyone to have access to God.
So, God is available to us, 365 – 24/7. Think about that… the God of the universe… the God who spoke the world into existence… the God who parted the Red Sea… who caused a six-story building at Jericho to crumble…. who caused Mary to conceive… who healed people… who walked on the water… that same God is available to us.
Take advantage of your access and call on Jesus today!
