So let then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of Grace, (the throne of God’s unmerited favor to us sinners), that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find grace to help in good time for every need [appropiate help and well timed help coming just when we need it]. Hebrews 4:16 AMP
When you approach our Father, do you remember you are His? Do you approach Him “Boldly”?
Anyone who has ever spent more than 3 minutes in the presence of a child can attest to the fact that kids don’t care what you’re doing, who you may be talking to, or how busy you think you are. If they want your attention they come and get it. And they expect you to give it to them…wholly… and undivided! Then they expect you to deal with the matter at hand.
That’s the way we are supposed to approach our Father as children who expect their Father to be available, who expect His love, grace, mercy, comfort and guidance. John 1:12 says, to those who received Christ and believe in His name, “He gave the right to become children of God.” Christians have no business sliding up to the Lord behaving like unworthy interloping strangers! To do so shows a complete lack of faith in what the blood of Jesus Christ, the Anointed, has done for us.
We who have been cleansed of our sins, purified, sanctified, made holy and righteous through the shed blood of Christ ought to remember that we are not alone when we approach the throne.
We have boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus. He is our Advocate and, while He pleads for His people, He pleads with the price in His hand, by which He purchased all that our souls want or can desire. ~ Matthew Henry ~
