Is Your Access Code Working?

Key AccessEsther 2:14 In the evening she went, and on the morrow she returned into the second house of the women, to the custody of Shaashgaz, the king’s chamberlain, which kept the concubines: she came in unto the king no more, except the king delighted in her, and that she were called by name.

Once a maiden had appeared before King A-has-u-e-rus, she could never go before him again unless she pleased him and he requested her presence.  They may wait a lifetime and never be allowed to see him again.  Thank God for Jesus!  Unlike Esther and the concubines of King A-has-u-e-rus, you and I can go before King Jesus any time and every time we desire to praise and worship Him, to obtain mercy and find grace to help in the time of need, and to ask for forgiveness.  How tragic it would be if we could never go before our King.  Love made it all possible.  Because of love, God gave Jesus His only Son, to be the propitiation [atoning sacrifice] for our sins.  Now, whosoever will accept the sweet aroma of Christ is smeared with His fragrance, which serves as our access code to go before our King.  Now, let us habitually go unto the throne of grace to visit our King.  He loves to spend time with you and me showing us His glory, meeting our needs and giving us His unconditional love.

Prayer for today:  Father, thank you for Jesus.  Thank you for continually smearing me with the fragrance of Jesus as I confess my shortcomings.  Thank you for giving me entrance to your throne room.   In JESUS name, AMEN.

Whatever you must do today, there is a grace for that.  Accept the grace and make it a sweatless day.
