A Throne of Grace
“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.
Henry Mahan – 1986
