Spiritual Strength For Each Day

“For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit” (1 Peter 3:18).

 In the moment that Jesus died and breathed His last breath, He brought us back to God. That is the tremendous significance of Matthew 27:50-51, “Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom.” This means nothing other than that in the same moment that Jesus died, God Himself opened His dwelling place, His sanctuary, which until then had been closed to us on account of sin. This opening was brought about through the death of Jesus Christ. His last cry and the tearing of the veil in the temple took place at the same time, so that the writer of the letter to the Hebrews rejoices, “Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; and having an high priest over the house of God; let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith” (Hebrews 10:19-22). This applies to us who believe on the Lord. Through the death of Jesus, the dividing veil was opened, and now we may come into the sanctuary.
