Day 16 - Hebrews 4:14-16


Hebrews 4:14-16

14 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. 16 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.

Sometimes we forget to surrender. Sometimes we refuse. Then our sense of guilt and inadequacy can cut us o from the current of God’s presence. On occasions when we have failed to surrender, then we have to learn to surrender even our failures. The most important thing about failure is this: Even when we have failed, the ow of the Spirit can be restored in our lives at any moment. Right now. All we have to do is ask. (GICTYT, p. 136)

The author of Hebrews reminds us that Jesus understands our fears and our weaknesses. He empathizes with our struggles and wants to help. This is why we can have confidence, that no matter what we have done or not done, we will find mercy and grace at the foot of God’s throne.

What is God inviting you to lay at the foot of his throne of grace and mercy?
