THE 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" (Hebr. 4:16).
Our Heavenly Father has chosen, called, and saved us to be sons in His family. Our Father wants us to be able to enter into His presence for fellowship and prayer. How do we come to the throne of grace and into His presence? First, we must have Holy Spirit renewed minds to properly comprehend what these things are all about. We are talking about coming boldly to the throne of grace. Grace indicates that there is nothing that we can be or do on our part to achieve the access. Throne indicates that this exalted position is in the presence of Almighty God. We are exhorted to come boldly, not in the flesh or in an arrogant manner, but in the confidence that we have in and through Christ.
"Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the
Holiest by the blood
of Jesus" (Hebr. 10:19).
Christ's shed blood has fully justified us and believing in Him imputes
His righteousness to us in the eyes of our Heavenly Father. By the
blood of Jesus we can boldly enter in to
The sacrificial one time offering of the body
has sanctified us, and believing in Him imputes His holiness to us in the
eyes of our Heavenly Father. We come boldly to
strictly by the merits of the 100% finished work of Christ crucified.
Since our Spirit rebirthing, we now have Christ
– the Mediator living
inside of us (Hebr. 9:15). Christ is omnipresent in every member of the Body
of Christ, while simultaneously interceding with the Father in heaven (Rom.
8:34). Christ is our Advocate with the Father (I John 2:1). In this
new shared life in Christ, we can come into the presence of our Father
Christ living in and expressed through us.
