Scriptures: Exodus 19:16-18, 20:1-21; Psalm 24; Hebrews 10:19-25; Matthew 27:45-54
Who may ascend the Holy hill, asks Psalm 24. When God brought His people out of Egypt, they insisted that Moses stand between them and God, lest they die. In His grace, God set up for them a system of priests, courtyards, and temples to keep the at a safe distance. In the work of Jesus, that safe distance loses its safety. God has bid us draw near, with only Christ to mediate and advocate for us, so that we are able to enter with confidence into our Father’s presence.
