“And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.” Matthew 27:50-51 (NIV)
The death of Jesus on the cross was a part of God’s great plan for you and me. As we read the record of the crucifixion we find that one of the events that occurred gave a sign of what his death has done for us. We read in John’s record that the last words of Jesus were “It is finished.” Then he died and at that very moment the curtain in the temple in Jerusalem was torn from top to bottom. Do you remember what that curtain was for? It was to show that people did not have access into God’s presence. His death opened the way for us to come to God. Let’s take advantage of this.
