The Throne of Grace

(Have the Goodie read to you!)

Let us therefore come boldly unto the Throne of Grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need (Hebrews 4:16).

A throne is a place of reigning. God sits on a throne. The “Throne of God” is known as one of “glory” (Jeremiah 14:21) and “majesty” (Hebrews 8:1). Surely every believer has thought of these aspects of God’s reigning – it is glorious and majestic.

Yet, not only is the magnitude of God’s Throne glorious and majestic, our text reveals that its very nature is that of “Grace.” Such an amazing revelation, that God’s glorious and majestic reign is one of “Grace”“the Throne of Grace.”

How many truly know that “Grace” is the genuine character of the Divine Throne? Many probably think of God’s Throne as a “Throne of Wrath,” but there is no such terminology to be found in God’s Word. Instead, we find that His is “the Throne of Grace.”

Oh, how our view of God has been skewed! Is your view of the Father one that allows you the boldness to come to His throne? Or, when you think of His Throne do you think of timidly, shamefully, fearfully cowering before it? How desperately does such a perception need divine adjustment!

The fact is, we are a needy people. We have been so designed by our Creator. What did you think such needy ones would get from the Throne of God? Wrath? No, it’s not the “Throne of Wrath,” but the “Throne of Grace” where we find our Father’s endless “mercy” and boundless “grace!”

What a Father! What a Throne! What Mercy and Grace!
