The Approach


"Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need" (Heb.4:13)

In order for airplanes to land safely, they must make an approach to the runway. On the approach, they slow down and gradually come closer to the ground. As passengers, we would all feel better if the plane could just softly land, but the approach is necessary. Today's verse tells us about the approach. If we want all the rewards of being God's children, we must then approach the throne of grace with great confidence... It is the great and wonderful answer to any trouble, distress, confusion, or hardship we may encounter... Approach the throne of grace with a great confidence... Approach the one who loves us and has compassion for us. Jesus put it this way: "Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls, For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light" (Matt.11:8-30). We saw yesterday how we have a great high priest who is able to sympathize with our weaknesses. That is Him telling us to take His yoke and find true rest for our souls... When we come to Him... When we approach Him in a humble and trusting way, we will find the mercy and grace we need to carry on. Whenever we find ourselves in need of the rest that is only found through Jesus, lets not fail to approach that throne of grace with confidence... The confidence lets the Lord know that we trust Him completely, and the landing will be smooth and safe....

Have a great day... Go about doing good... Love mark Phil.4:11
