This is the ordinance of the Passover: No foreigner shall eat it.
We have an altar from which those who serve the tabernacle have no right to eat. § Unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. § At that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise … But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.
For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, … having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace.
Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God.
If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.

[Jesus] prayed the third time, saying the same words.
Who, in the days of His flesh, … offered up prayers and supplications, with vehement cries and tears to Him who was able to save Him from death.
Let us know, let us pursue the knowledge of the Lord. § [Continue] steadfastly in prayer. § Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication. § By prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will. § This is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. Delight yourself … in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass.
