19 Brothers and sisters, we have confidence that we can enter the holy of holies by means of Jesus’ blood, 20 through a new and living way that he opened up for us through the curtain, which is his body, 21 and we have a great high priest over God’s house.
22 Therefore, let’s draw near with a genuine heart with the certainty that our faith gives us, since our hearts are sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies are washed with pure water. (Heb. 10:19-22, CEB)
We have become too easily satisfied. We have settled into propositional truths and contented ourselves with intellectual ascent to being “in Christ.” It has come to a point, it seems, where we care very little about missing something on the personal level of experience.
The instant cure of most of our religious ills would be to enter the Presence in spiritual experience, to become suddenly aware that we are in God and that God is in us. (Tozer, The Pursuit of God)
The great adventure of knowing God is the greatest invitation we have. It is the opportunity to lift ourselves out of our narrow thinking and put us in a place where our hearts can be enlarged by his presence. We need this call shouting in our inner most being: “BOLDLY go into that holy presence!”
