Lenten Devotional - Day Thirty-One

Read: Matthew 27:45-55


Think: Wow! Before Jesus was even resurrected, tons of miraculous stuff happened! But why was it significant that the curtain in the Temple ripped itself from top to bottom? Up until this point, only the High Priest could enter the “Holy of Holies” behind the curtain where God’s presence was in the Temple. And he could only do it once a year! When Jesus died, He paid the ultimate sacrifice so anyone could be in God’s presence now. The curtain was torn, like Jesus’ body was torn, so you could walk right into God’s throne room. And you still can, too.


Pray: God, you rock! Thank you for letting me come into your presence. Thank you for sending Jesus to do away with all other sacrifices by being the perfect sacrifice for me. The curtain is torn—so I’m walking straight into your presence!


Apply: Spend time praying your own prayers of worship on your knees. You are in God’s throne room, right there in your bedroom, because of Jesus’ death for us all!
