Receiving God’s Grace
Jan 24 – Feb 3
The Throne of Grace
By Michael Youssef, Ph D. 01/26/21
Hebrews 4:16 says, “Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” This is an invitation for all who put their trust in Jesus Christ to experience the awesome power of God’s grace that flows from His very throne.
Hebrews 4:16 is an invitation to come to the throne that was converted from a throne of judgment to a throne of grace. There, you will experience unbelievable and untold blessings from the hand of God.
God the Son, who sits at the right hand of God, is our great High Priest. Our Great High Priest understands us. Our Great High Priest sympathizes with us. Our Great High Priest knows our weaknesses.
As our Great High Priest, the Lord Jesus Christ waits for us every single day to come to the throne of God—not for condemnation, but for blessing. As our Great High Priest, He is waiting for us every single day to come to the throne of grace in order to give us power over temptation. As our Great High Priest, He is waiting for us in order that we may receive victory over the trials of life.
Prayer: Great High Priest, thank You for allowing me to approach the throne of grace with confidence. May I never take such a gift for granted, but humbly come before You daily with my praises and petitions. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
“In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence” (Ephesians 3:12).
