It’s hard to think that a little baby – born in a manger, in a lowly stable –is sitting at the right hand of the Father as a King. However, Jesus, in all His glory and splendor, is seated on high. It humbles me to think that our everlasting King bled, suffered and died on earth just for me.
And, now, he allows us to approach his throne boldly! As Hebrews 4:16 says, “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help us in time of need.” Wow. A King – in all His riches and honor would tell me, a servant vagabond, to approach his throne? I tremble to think of that thought.
Can you imagine it? You walk, hands calloused from working and feet muddy from walking, into a jewel incrusted throne room. And, the King calls out your name – and with a compassionate voice says walk forward so that I can grant you my mercies everlasting! This is the love of Christ for us. He accepts us just as we are – in rags of this world – and gives us new clothes and new name. 1 Peter 5:7 says “Cast all your cares on him – because he cares for you.” Let’s sit at the feet of the King of Kings and give him all glory, honor and praise today!
– PRAYER –
I am humbled that you would call me your child and invite me into your throne room of grace. I want to seek out your mercies – that are new every morning and receive the goodness from your right hand. Please grant me the courage to step out in you and speak the truth to a darkened world. I need your strength to go about my days. Thank you for your promises that bless my life. May I reflect you in my actions, words and deeds always! I cling to you, Father. You are my vine.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
