Unlimited Access

From God comes…

From God comes unlimited access to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Today our access to many things is quite restrictive. Guest lists are screened. Only certain ones get invited to prestigious events. Sometimes extensive background searches are conducted to keep out those who don’t measure up.

Plus, there are many places we cannot enter with signs stating No Trespassing, Authorized Personnel Only, Keep Out, No Parking, Restricted Area, etc. This is not necessarily a bad thing. Certain boundaries are necessary in today’s society. However, we all have unlimited access to God.

This was not always the case. Having an intimate relationship with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit is a big deal and was not really possible for the common man before the death of Christ.

In Old Testament times, the High Priest was the mediator between God and the people. Only he could enter the Holy of Holies in the temple. (Hebrews 9:7) The Holy of Holies was a special place, considered the earthly dwelling place for God’s presence. A veil or thick curtain divided it from the rest of the temple, where man could dwell.

However, when Jesus died for our sins, that veil or curtain was miraculously “rent” or torn from top to bottom. (Matthew 27:50-51) God no longer dwells in temples made of hands. (Acts 17:24) The way to God the Father is not through the temple, but through Christ His Son, because Jesus is now our High Priest. (Hebrews 10:19-22) We don’t need to go through another person like a priest, a minister, a guru, a psychic, or an angel to have access to God.

We now have direct unlimited access to the Triune God. (Ephesians 2:17-18) And God places no restrictions on who can come to Him. He places no restrictions on how often we can come. He places no restrictions on what we can discuss.  

In fact, God beckons us to come. If we are tired and weary, God says if we come to Him, He will give us rest. (Matthew 11:28) If we are thirsty, He will fill us with living water. (John 7:37) In fact, He says that He will not drive away any who come to Him. (John 6:37)

You might say God has an open door policy. God is always available and His door is always open to any who want to come. You might say that we always have a VIP ticket of entry. I find that kind of comforting in a world where my name is not on the access list to many prestigious places.  


“Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God…”

~James 1:17 (NLT)
