The Throne of Grace
by Berni Dymet
Whenever I speak with people about praying – you know one of the most common reactions is this:
“I’m not good enough. That person over there – well she probably is. And that one over yonder – well, I think he would be.
“But not me. You don’t know me. I mean, the things I’ve said and done and…..no, I just can’t bowl up to God and start praying.”
That’s how so many people feel. And if that’s your reaction – in one sense you’d be right. But in another – completely and utterly wrong.
Because on the one hand God is a perfect or “holy” God – and we all fall well and truly short of that. But on the other Hand – He knows that.
And that’s why He sent Jesus Christ His Son to die for us – to pay for all of the “falling short” that we do – so that we can have free access to Him.
Jesus, it turns out, is the key. And we can come boldly before the throne of grace through Him. You know – grace is only grace when we don’t deserve it.
