Torn

Mark 15:38: “Then the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.”

That which symbolized separation and unworthiness. You tore it.

From top to bottom.

You initiated the whole thing. We tried to pull at the threads at the bottom but we were completely unable to do what was required.

But it could only be torn because your Son was torn.

His flesh-ripped.
Hair pulled from his face.

Your tearing brings my wholeness.

Yet it’s ironic how they were not willing to tear his outer garment. They ploughed his skin but cast lots for his coat.

This world and its value system I’ll never understand.

You allowed yourself to be torn from your Son so you could be joined with us.

Your love I will never understand.

Heb 10:19-20: “Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh.”
