Recently when my family and I went to six flags in St Louis, I noticed a sign that many of you have seen at other amusement parks.


This is a special entrance for those that have paid an extra price to by-pass the long lines for the rides and can receive immediate access to the ride because of their special pass.

Something similar to this, is at a big concert or event and you see people who have special name tags that say "All Access" - this means they have free access to go wherever they want to, including behind the stage or curtain.

Usually to receive such a pass, you have to know someone or you have to pay an extra admittance fee.

Likewise, to gain access into the presence of God, you have to know somebody. Not everybody has access - but only those with connections to Jesus. Those that have accepted Him. Unfortunately, not everyone who are connected to Jesus take full advantage of the access He has given them.

HEBREWS 4:16 "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."

God has granted us access and He invites us in. He wants to know us and He has extended the all-access pass to come into the presence of God. All you have to do is accept it and come boldly to His throne.

There is no extra charge for it. The price has already been paid.

I am so thankful that I have a personal All Access Pass to my Heavenly or night. He is always available, He is never closed but He readily available just by speaking His name.

Love this post, Laurie!

Love you!

A few years back when we went to Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry, we ended up getting "All-Access pass's" due to it saving us money in the long run. Seriously!! For passes for a family of six, plus passes to be admitted to the special Titanic exhibit they had at that point in time, it came up to quite the total!! But then we noticed the "All Access Family Yearly Membership Package", which included free admittance to the museum for one years time, admitance to any specials they hosted during that year, discounts at their snack shop, free parking, private bathrooms, etc.; all at a price considerably less than if we bought the individual passes. We were amazed!! At almost the end of the day on that first visit, we were standing in line hoping to get to go down in their coal mine exhibit before they declared it the end of the day = out of time. Suddenly a worker was coming down the line checking everybodies tickets... okay ... and then informed us that we had full access passes so we got to go to the front of the line. We felt kind of ackward passing by the others and told the guy tht we had just bought the family membership cuz it was cheaper, that we didn't mean to cut anybody else out. Most of the others in line started chuckling and making comments about how this time being frugal REALLY paid, and wished us enjoyment on our trip down to the mine. And, we were the last load that went down that day . . .
Seeings how we were in Chicago visiting a son at college, we did end up going back once more that year - for free - to see the trian exhibit (my husband loves toy trains!!). We also got to take another person with us - for free on a complimentary guest pass - a friend whom was attending another Chicago area college ... Two trips, with free parking, no wait bathrooms, complimentary coffee, etc. AND taking a friend with us for free - all at less than we thought it would cost us for our original visit. :-D
I am also oh so thankful that via having accepted Christ as my personnal savior - I have a "Free (to me) all access pass" to his throne. I don't have to wait in line to make my requests, concerns, or thankfullness's know to him. And my pass with him isin't only for one visit, nor is it a bonus year long pass - but rather a life time one!!! Totally wonderful!!! ;-}
