The Daily Breath of God
Friday, March 02 2012
And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. Matthew 27:50,51The sacrifice of Jesus the Christ was not a religious moment. It was that which is dead coming into contact with that which is life. The curtain in the temple separated people from the presence of God and only the high priest could go behind the curtain once a year for the sins of the people. The curtain represented our sins and the tearing of the curtain, from the top to the bottom was the action of God’s grace upon our sin. Now because of his grace nothing can separate us from the love and presence of God. Yet some who have experienced grace for salvation let their sins keep them from the beauty of the life of God that tore the curtain. On this new day because of the grace of God in Jesus the Christ may you live in the joy of his presence and love. No matter where you have been, nothing can separate you now from the life, the love, the grace and the presence of God. This is a good day to make a joyful noise unto the Lord. In his presence all things become new.
