“Receiving Mercy and Finding Grace”
Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16
Living a Christian life is NOT easy, especially in this day and age. We LIVE in the world, but we are NOT to partake of the things of the world, things that are contrary to the WILL and WAYS of the ALMIGHTY GOD. Being a Christian, a TRUE BELIEVER in the Lord Jesus Christ, we must conduct ourselves in a manner that would exemplify our relationship with Him. This can be difficult to do, but NOT IMPOSSIBLE, as long as we DEPEND on the HOLY SPIRIT of God to GUIDE us. However, there may be times when we are WEAK and in NEED of MERCY and GRACE to help us STAY the COURSE.
Our Scripture, today, tells us to COME to the Throne of Grace, with CONFIDENCE. When Jesus, died and rose from the grave, He paid the price for the REDEMPTION of ALL of MANKIND. His SACRIFICIAL BLOOD was brought before the Throne of Grace and poured out on the ALTAR as the ULTIMATE, ONCE FOR ALL, SACRIFICE, which cleared the way for MANKIND to RECEIVE GOD’S MERCY, which is NOT receiving what WE DESERVE, but instead we FIND HIS GRACE, which is RECEIVING the BLESSING of SALVATION that we do NOT DESERVE.
God is MERCIFUL, and is therefore, offering His MERCY to those who have NOT RECEIVED it, and are destined for an ETERNITY in Hell, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY of ESCAPE. He is GRACIOUS, and when you RECEIVE His MERCY, you WILL FIND His GRACE, the BLESSING of SALVATION, which you DO NOT DESERVE on your OWN MERITS.
If you have RECEIVED HIS MERCY, and FOUND HIS GRACE, then you can come to His Throne of GRACE, with CONFIDENCE that He will provide you with help in the time of your need. But in order for you to do this. You MUST FIRST come to His Throne of GRACE, WILLING TO TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and to TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART that JESUS died for YOU, and that He IS ALIVE, in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. Then CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. You MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and RECEIVE His MERCY and FIND His GRACE, the BLESSING of your ETERNAL LIFE in HEAVEN. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
