THOUGHT: God has provided a way through Jesus Christ for us to enter into His presence.
BIBLE: Therefore, brothers, since 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, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Hebrews 10:19-22
TRASCRIPT: Hey, everybody! Welcome back to Morning Thrive. Let me ask you a question – Have you ever felt far from God, or ever wonder why God is silent? Have you ever been praying and you don’t think your prayers are getting past the ceiling? It’s easy to get discouraged when you feel far from God, and I think most people go through seasons when they just feel distant from God. I think about ancient Israel and how they went through 400 years without hearing a word from God. Now listen, if you’re feeling far from God I want to encourage you for just a minute. While you may feel far from God – God is not far from you. In fact, the Bible says in Hebrews 10:19,22, “Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus…let us draw near.” In other words, God has provided a way through Jesus for you to enter into His presence. For you to draw near. For you to know Him, and walk with Him, and experience Him in a deep personal relationship. So, this week if you’re feeling far from God we’re going to talk about how you can get close to Him again. Alright? It’s going to be a great week. See you tomorrow.
