An all-access pass is of one of four types of backstage passes. Typically, they are issued to employees who are connected to an event, such as a concert. Fans who have a full access pass have the privilege of accessing areas backstage that are not open to regular members of the public.
Perhaps you have had the experience of receiving an all-access pass to an event or, perhaps, like me, you never have; however, I want to remind you of one place to which you have full access all of the 86400 seconds in each day of the 365 days in a year. Where? The Throne of Grace. Our all-access pass is provided through our High Priest, the Lord Jesus. Read the encouraging words of Hebrews 4:14-16:
“So then, since we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to what we believe. This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for He faced all of the same testings we do, yet He did not sin. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.” (Hebrews 4:14-16; New Living Translation; emphasis added)
It cost the Father everything to give us access. Let nothing keep us from using our all-access pass to the throne of God, especially not the lies of our Enemy. We are welcomed there. Always.
