by the new and living way

Hebrews 10:20 (ESV)

20 … by the new and living way that he opened for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh, …

Jesus describes Himself both as “the door” and “the way” (John 10:9 & 14:6 respectively in John’s gospel).

The new and living way to God.

For Jesus is quite adamant that there is no other way.

Only “through [Him]” can we “come to the Father” (John 14:6).

But this should be good news. For we “are no longer strangers and aliens, but [we] are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God” (Ephesians 2:19).

It’s like a homecoming. A return to the family after a long trip abroad. And don’t I know that!


prayer : thank you Jesus that you are “the way, and the truth, and the life” (John 14:6)

action : although I live in this world, act as though I am a citizen “of heaven” (Philippians 3:20)
