A Bible verse on grace and hope
Let us therefore draw near with boldness to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy, and may find grace for help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16
To anybody who has any doubt about God’s grace and mercy let this scripture bless you today. This Bible verse of the day is a scripture on grace. The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases they are new every morning. Great is His faithfulness.
This Bible verse is from the Apostle Paul ‘s letter to the Hebrews. This letter, sometimes called an Epistle was to Jewish Christians who now believed on Jesus as their Lord and Messiah. Unlike the Christian believers at Corinth or Ephesus who were gentiles, the newly converted Jewish believers were formerly followers of traditional Judaism. They had followed the Law of Moses and the Ten Commandments since they were children. These new Jewish Christians may have thought that God was unapproachable because of man’s sin. The Apostle Paul explains in the previous verses that God is no longer unapproachable. Jesus is now a go-between for us – an intermediary and intercessor. That’s why He is called the High Priest. Jesus knows and understands every aspect of the human condition. Therefore not only did Jesus pay the price for sin but He understands everything about us.
Having then a great high priest, who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold tightly to our confession. For we don’t have a high priest who can’t be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but one who has been in all points tempted like we are, yet without sin. (Hebrews 4:14-15).
Jesus had paid the price for sin for the Jewish Christians, fulfilling the law of Moses not abolishing the law of Moses. He also made a way to the Father for all believers. He is the way, the truth and the life and nobody comes to the Father except by Him.
Every one who believes in Jesus can therefore draw near with boldness to the throne of grace, that they may receive mercy, and may find grace for help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16
