“Let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16).
The discovery of God’s mercies is linked directly to our confidence in the sufficiency of all that was accomplished in the life and ministry of the resurrected Christ. It’s only those trusting in their own righteousness, religiosity, and merit that come to the throne of God with uncertainty and trepidation. To trust in Christ, and none other, is the only means of receiving mercy and finding grace. Of this, you can be confident.
