Reflection on Hebrews 4:12-16

Scripture
Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

Observation
The word of God is sharper than any two-edged sword and pierces deeply into our spirit. The word judges our thoughts and intentions so that no one can hide from God.

We have a great high priest who is just like us, tested in every way as we are, yet without sin. Because of Him, Jesus the Son of God, we may boldly approach the throne of grace to find mercy, grace and help.

Application
God’s word brings both judgement and grace. The word reads us as much as we read it, and It sinks in deeply to reveal the true state of our soul.

But Christ who is both the living word and the great high priest, provides both grace and mercy, so that our sins, even the ones we hide most carefully, can be brought out and forgiven.

Jesus doesn’t just provide forgiveness for sin, He empowers us to stand form in Him and to resists sin’s claim on our life.

Prayer
Thank you Lord for the grace and mercy I find at your throne. Amen.
