Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Oh what exciting news that we can come to the throne of grace to receive the mercy and grace needed to survive.
We are not only told to come but come boldly and confidently before the throne. A move that needs to be made in the right attitude of humbleness and thanksgiving instead of one full of arrogance and pride.
Why are we instructed to come boldly and confidently? It's not for anything we can take credit for. It's because God is telling us we can come that way because we can rest assure we will get what God promises. It doesn't matter what we have done, we are promised grace and mercy.
Too often we think we are too bad of a person to receive such a thing. We feel we are beyond deserving God's gifts of grace and mercy He tells us to come boldly forward to claim. These are lies from Satan that need to be ignored.
It's our job to toss aside the lies and step forward in our confidence in Christ. Stepping up our boldness as we claim our gifts today and tomorrow for evermore. The gifts needed for our survival. The gifts designed for you and me.
