“Jesus: Our Great High Priest” Hebrews 4:14-16 Monday, July 27, 2020
A throne can be a term for the center of authority and power. We may not think of thrones quite the way we did a few hundred years ago, but they do still exist. The reality of great seats of authority does exist in our world today. We have nations and large corporations that exercise incredible levels of authority. There exists a seat of authority in heaven where God rules. The amazing grace of the gospel is that, through Jesus Christ, anyone who has placed their lives in his hands may approach the throne of God. Unlike this world's thrones God's throne is a throne of grace. All are welcome through Jesus Christ. Here is an exhortation by the power of the Holy Spirit: "Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace in our time of need" (Hebrews 4:16).
