Dear church,

I wonder whether we appreciate what we have when it comes to our access to God. Perhaps sometimes we get used to this wonderful thing that is in our possession as Christians, and we take it for granted.

The writer of Hebrews said, “a better hope is introduced, through which we draw near to God.” And then he wrote, “Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them.”

The writer, of course, was talking about Jesus. Jesus is the “better hope,” and Jesus is the one who can save to the “uttermost.”

And we get to draw near to God.

I wonder whether we appreciate the fact we can draw near to God. Do we think much about this when we pray or when we join our church family for worship? We can draw near to God. There is no barrier. It is not only “special” people who can have a close connection with Him.

And Christ is always standing next to the Father, speaking to him on our behalf. Your sin is covered by Christ.

Chris
