Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy an find grace to help in the time of need.

Hebrews 4:16

The safest place to go when we have sinned is to the throne of grace. In Hebrews 4:15 we read that Jesus Christ sympathizes with our weaknesses. Even though He does not sin, Jesus sympathizes with all our struggles. The pressure to sin is intense, and the temptations we face are powerful, yet Jesus understands what we are going through. He is well acquainted with the spiritual battles we face every day.

For this reason, Jesus makes His throne available to us and we can confidently approach it – unlike an Old Testament priest who always feared that his sacrifice might not be acceptable to the Lord. The priest always feared for his own life – that it would be taken in judgement.

But we have a resurrected Lord as our High Priest. He was the perfect sacrifice for our sin, so we can – and we should – purposefully and boldly approach His throne of grace. For God has mercy and grace in abundance for the humbled sinner. He knows what we are going through; He knows what we need, and He can give us what we seek. GO TO HIM TODAY!
