Don’t Waste Your Fast Pass

Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, Hebrews 10:19-20 (NIV) 

In order to get the most out of our theme park visit, many of us will divide and conquer right!?! Having thoroughly evaluated the park map, we get up early, each member of the group rushing to their assigned rides to obtain enough fast passes to jump the lines throughout the day! Do we forget that there are no lines to meet with our Almighty Creator God?! Jesus made a way for us to pass into His presence, to come before His throne with confidence!! Jesus became The Way Himself, allowing His own body to be torn that He could be the Savior of our souls!! There is no line dear one, the Way is open to you!!! 

And yet how often do we keep our God waiting on us?

and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Hebrews 10:21-22 (NIV) 

God Almighty has no waiting line to the throne room and yet how often do we make Him wait to give us His Word that sustains the weary because we want a few extra minutes in bed… or we would rather do “this” or “that” before we get to Him. “God Almighty, My Creator, My Deliverer, My Eternally Good and Most Holy Faithful Father, My Redeemer, Forgiving Savior, My Provider of the very breath I breathe… hold on while I sleep a bit more, while I tick off a few of the things on my to-do list… I’ll be with you in a minute God, lover of my soul.” Crazy right!! Too often we wait till the “party’s” over at the end of the day asking God what He thought, instead of starting the “party” asking God what He thinks. How much better would our “party” (our days) go if we put Him in the front of our line of things to do each day?

Let us hold unswervingly the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10:19-25 (NIV) 

God can give you total victory (I’ve heard it stated “blanket victory”) over the blankets that keep you in bed away from time with Him and victory over the things you think you must do, so that His presence becomes what you crave more than anything else that would threaten to come between you and the Savior of your soul. 

Jesus has given you a “fast pass” to the very throne room of God, there is no line dear one… what are you waiting for? 

The Sovereign LORD has given me a well-instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary. He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being instructed. Isaiah 50:4 (NIV) Come join a Bible study today!
