Why would anyone avoid God? He’s so loving, holds no grudges and expects no payments for taking care of our deepest concerns or most trivial worries.
Why avoid God? He scares me! He could interrupt my plans! He’s overbearing! I’m unwelcome! Maybe these are some of your hangups with God?
The writer of Hebrews disagrees with these assessments, and points to one of the most ancient and perhaps obscure characters in the Bible: Melchezedek. There lies the proof that God wants nothing to stand in between Himself and us, because He is far more loving than we could possibly imagine!
What God wants for us is a life of hope. The destination? Inside His sanctuary!
