The Veil

Ok... I'm not too bright when it comes to knowing the bible. This is entirely not my fault, though I could work a little harder at reading it.

Today we were talking about prayer (Matthew 6) in church and somehow our Pastor, (who by the way, was on fire with the sermon he preached - God must have been so proud) got talking about how when Jesus died the veil in the church split in two, how God seperated the area between where the sacrifices were done and the "holy part" of the church (now remember this is how I remembered the story - if I am wrong - feel free to correct me - in a nice way of course) and how that seperation means we can have a relationship with God - He loves us that much.

Now, how amazing is that. You all know I am a sinner, and God loves us that much that He wants to have a relationship with us. I was just crying. All the signs of His love. There are so many. We (at least I!) am so unworthy. And He loves us anyway, and He wants to be with us, a part of our lives.

I'm blown away. Sorry for two blogs today, I just was overwhelmed with joy and had to share.

John 14:20-21 On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. 21Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show myself to him."

OK Sweet Margie, more tears. You just blew me away with this post. You don't hear the word of God with your ears, you hear them with your heart. Isn't it beyond awesome that we don't have to go to a "middle man" we can have a personal and direct relationship with God ~ He loved us that much.
