Draw Near to the Throne of Grace

O how great our God is to have blessed us with access to His throne. O how wonderful He is to have opened His doors to His mercy seat. May the cherubim and seraphim praise His name on high, for by His high priest, Jesus Christ, we are saved.

“Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”

(Hebrews 4:14-16)

We ought not to be anxious for this present suffering we endure. Jesus suffered as we have, even more so, endured a greater suffering. Yet, by His stripes we are healed. By the strength with which He overcame temptation, we also will overcome our temptation.

When we are weak, we are strong. When we are unable, He will enable us. Only Jesus can give us power to rise from our struggles and pour our hearts into all that He wants for our lives. No other purpose is important other than serving Christ our Lord.

Brothers and sisters, be strong. We have the promise that Christ will one day come again. His mercy will never fail. Therefore, seek God wholeheartedly, holding fast the truth and always remembering to draw near to the throne of grace.
