Passage

Luke 19:45-48

There is no small amount of energy spent in our world on gaining access.  Perhaps you've seen someone with an 'All Access Pass' at a concert you've gone to?  Maybe you've felt the bitter exclusion (or delicious inclusion) to some secret inner circle?  As we read Luke 19:45-48, we see Jesus passionate about access to God.  Who can approach God?  The Israelite scribes and teachers of the law certainly had very concrete ideas on this subject.  What was Jesus' perspective on who had access to God?  What does access to God look like today, in our lives?
