Remember how communication has evolved over the past 150 years or so:
- Telephone (Direct Line)
- Telephone Exchange
- Party Line
- Cell phone
Our communication has constantly improved, because each new invention, though it solved one problem, it also brought limitations.
Jesus created a form of communication through the law, but there were several problems:
- You had to go through someone to get to Him.
- The law only told you what you should not do.
- Blood had to be shed constantly.
The day Jesus died and rose again, everything changed. Grace and truth came through Jesus Christ, allowing us to access the Father without having to shed an animals blood, or go through a priest, regardless of what we’ve done or where we’ve been.
“Look beyond the fancy boxes and gift wrapping and say, ‘God thank You for grace and truth.’” – Pastor Ferne Sapp
