A Short Study of Hebrews 4:16
“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”
We are coming, not to a throne of law, nor to a throne of strict justice, but to a THRONE OF GRACE. The words throne, majesty, power, and omnipotence all leave me awed and frightened; but the soft, gentle word GRACE stirs my spirit and heart to venture nigh in sincerity, humility, and hope!
For, though there are a thousand defects in my prayers, it is a throne of GRACE.
Though there are many defects in my knowledge, it is a throne of GRACE.
Though there are so many weaknesses in my spirit, it is a throne of GRACE.
Though my faith is so weak and dishonoring to the King, it is a throne of GRACE.
Grace loves, grace forgives, grace abounds, grace is sufficient; and His grace is greater than all my sins.
