A Throne of Grace

A Throne of Grace

Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Hebrews 4:16

A Throne of Grace
Oh, then, let us come boldly to the throne of grace! It is a “throne of grace” because graced by our great High Priest being seated there. Thence is dispensed mercy and grace for seasonable or opportune help (see jnd), only we must come to the throne in order that we may get it. What Israelite of old dared approach with any boldness the awful throne of the Almighty God? When Ezekiel saw it in a vision, there was “a likeness with the appearance of a man high above it” (Ezek. 1:26), yet he had no boldness, but rather fell upon his face. The Son of God sits on the throne, but it is the Son of God in true and tender and sympathetic manhood. Realizing this, all fear vanishes and we draw near with boldness.

The whole period of our life down here is the “time of need” to us, and coming boldly all opportune mercy and grace is ours. We have but to approach in prayer and supplication. It is guaranteed to us by the character of the One to whom we come, His greatness on the one hand and His grace on the other.

How rarely do we find these two things united among men. Here, for instance, is a very great man, with much power and ability to help others. But he cannot afford to adopt a very kindly attitude and make himself easily accessible lest he be overwhelmed by applicants. He could do much for you if only you could approach him, but you cannot get at him. Here is another, and a kindlier, more accessible, more sympathetic person it would be impossible to imagine, but when you get at him he has no power to do anything for you. Thus it generally is among men; but thus it is not with our Lord. Both power and grace are combined in Him.

WORKING OUT AN ALTERNATIVE

In this uncommon race that we have enlisted in, if you rest prematurely, or take your eyes off the daystar we are following, you will be distracted. Another thing that can divert your attention is opening your mouth prematurely to reveal your secret to ‘sympathetic friends’. Never share a testimony until it is...More

THE BLESSING OF THANKSGIVING

Thanksgiving to God, especially for gifts and blessings received, is required and expected. God abhors ungrateful people. God expects Christians to give thanks in all circumstances they are confronted with. In 1 Thessalonians 5:18, Apostle Paul wrote:
