We can come boldly to the throne of grace to obtain mercy and grace in time of need because we know who Jesus is in our lives. Jesus is our great High Priest. He is compassionate and faithful. He endured the temptations. He was touched with the feelings of our infirmities, and He understands everything we go through.
Even when no one else “gets” us, He does. He sympathizes with us and helps with the burdens and cares we carry to Him. We come to Him, not thinking we might obtain mercy and find grace, but knowing we will do so, with certainty. By faith we surrender our problems to Him and receive Him, the answer in every situation. It’s all we need, because Jesus is all we need. He is the way, the truth and the life. We come with confidence knowing the price has been paid and we don’t get what we deserve, but what we don’t deserve. How wonderful it is to find mercy and grace in our times of need!
The Word of God is alive, active, and sharper than any two-edged sword. He pierces and reveals, through His love, what needs to be dealt with in ourselves. It’s not our inadequacy, but God’s sufficiency that allows us to come boldly to Him. He knows; He understands; He cares and He loves. We believe. We receive. We come boldly, from glory to glory!
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.”
