Is it rational to knock at a door already opened to us?
Is it wise to attempt digging a well inside a flowing stream in the search for water?
Does it make sense to seek permission to loving one’s spouse?
How sad it is for one to roam about in search of a cabin when the golden gates of heavenly mansion is already opened before the seeker!
At the victorious exclamation of Jesus; ‘IT IS FINISHED!’ the temple veil was divided from top to bottom and the mercy seat of God has been made visible.
The good news of the opened veil is that all men and women now posses the legal free ticket distributed at the foot of the cross of Calvary to enter into the presence of God most holy through Christ Jesus.
The veil was not opened for God but for us. We shall not escape if we neglect such great offer of salvation.
In this holy season of Lent, let us not fail to reflect on the veil already opened and make judicious use of its opening.
