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. Hebrews 4: 16 NIV

Christ helps us feel the power of God’s MERCY and GRACE. He reminds us why salvation is so much more than just the forgiving of sin. MERCY is NOT getting what we deserve and GRACE is receiving what we are NOT deserving of (reward). 

In the journey of life, we will fall short and make choices that are not good. We will sin and continue to not measure up. But, Christ will help us seek forgiveness and recognize we are weak. God’s MERCY will convince us to overcome; even when it’s hard. And, His amazing GRACE will bless us in ways we never imagined. 

We are lucky to be covered by what we don’t deserve… Jesus paid the price of our sin. The Bible says, ““forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead.” (Philippians 3:13) When we become new in Christ, God restores us. He allows us to recognize His strength is made perfect in weakness. And, He shows us how to get back on track. 

We must boldly approach the throne of God with confidence and open our hearts to what is offered when we seek, surrender and believe. God will provide MERCY and GRACE to help in time of need. And, we will be able to understand what it means to humbly embrace the blessing of a grateful heart. 

Dear God, Thank you for MERCY. Thank you for the gift of Your amazing GRACE. Forgive us when we struggle to do what is pleasing to You. We will trust in the power of Your greatness and patiently wait to welcome ALL You provide. And, we will prayerfully praise Jesus for helping us embrace the blessing of a grateful heart. Amen
