the way into the most holy place

The Holy Spirit used this to show that the way into the most holy place was not open while the tent was still in use. [Hebrews 9:8 GW]

It seems that every sect has a designated holy place. Jesus addressed this when he spoke to the woman at well. Her perspective was that the place of worship was important. Jesus corrected her indicating that how we worship (i.e. in spirit and in truth) is more important than where we worship.

In reality, for a believer the holy place of worship lives within us. Paul told the Corinthians that our body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within us. In that sense, a tent or building is not needed to talk to God. The way into the holy place is the way of the heart. The way of listening to God's voice within.

Open our eyes and our ears Lord to your presence in our lives.

... this devotion is part of a series from the book of Hebrews.
