In the sermon on Sunday 24th February, one of the scriptures we are going to explore is Hebrews 4:14-16:
Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to feel sympathy for our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
Mercy and grace, tailored and shaped for us in today’s specific time of particular need. This is grace and mercy made to measure.
As we conclude the Even Though series on walking with God through pain and suffering, let’s not lose sight of the wonderful fact that we are not abandoned by God to walk our path alone with only our own resources to sustain us. We can be bold and confident to approach God’s throne of grace so that we may receive made-for-measure grace and mercy. How good is that?
