Memorization Monday - Hebrews 4:16

Heb 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

God invites us to come boldly  to His throne in prayer. It is a throne of grace which means that we find there a God who is willing to forgive and extend grace because of what Jesus Christ has done on our behalf. Hebrews 7:25 tells us that He is able to save to the uttermost those who come unto God through Him.  It is always through Christ that we approach God. In today's verse we are welcomed to the throne of God for mercy and grace because our High Priest, Jesus Christ, has been tempted in all ways like we have been and therefore is able to empathize and sympathize with us. He is not a God who is distant and unconcerned and without understanding of our situation.

So what should our response be?  We should have boldness to come to Him in prayer regularly and faithfully.
