Follow the Cherubim

Tim Challies posts today on one of my favorite themes, the cherubims’ protection of God’s presence. It’s an amazing theme, and it highlights the access that was regained for sinners through the sacrifice of Christ. The torn veil signified the removal of the barrier between God and fallen humanity—the stepping aside of the cherubim who had barred access to God ever since Eden. “Access.” I love that word (Ephesians 3:12).

The cherub motif is one I’ve pursued in a hymn I wrote with James Koerts—“Draw Near through Christ” (Text /MP3 / PDF / SATB / Notes). Grace.
