Drawing Nigh to God

As regards drawing nigh to God, the position of the Christian is entirely changed from that of the Jew. Then (Heb. 9) the way into the holiest was not made manifest, and no one, not even the priests, could go into the presence of God, within the veil; and the services were a remembrance of sins. Now, the work of Christ being accomplished, the veil is rent. It is not a people in a certain relationship with God, yet always remaining without, drawing near to the altar. It is full grace going out to the world, every believer having perfect boldness to enter the holiest.
Christ must be known by faith to the individual himself, in order that he may be changed into the same image. No ordinance can do this.
