Lord’s Day 02/28 confidence in Christ

Post image for Lord’s Day 02/28 confidence in Christ

You don’t have to go worship God this weekend with His people. You get to go worship God this weekend with His people. You get to do what God’s past people could only dream of, worship God openly, directly and corporately through the Messiah.

Think and reflect on the words below as you savor the opportunity to worship God through Christ.

“We have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus, by the new and living way that he opened for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh” (Hebrews 10:19-20). Without Christ the holiness of God had to be protected from us. He would have been dishonored, and we would have been consumed because of our sin. But now, because of Christ, we may come near and feast our hearts on the fullness of the flaming beauty of God’s holiness. He will not be dishonored. We will not be consumed. Because of the all-protecting Christ, God will be honored, and we will stand in everlasting awe. Therefore, do not fear to come. But come through Christ.
