Boldness Before The Throne Of Grace (Hebrews 4:16)

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

Hebrews 4:16 (KJV)

We can come boldly the throne of grace independent of how well we have been performing. We know that when we have missed it and fallen short, God’s attitude towards us does not change. Our boldness comes out of our confident assurance that God is not dealing with us based on our performance, but that God is dealing with us based on the perfect performance of Jesus on our behalf.

Forgiveness Is A Finished Work (1 John 2:12)

I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake.

1 John 2:12 (KJV)

In Christ we are not hoping that maybe God will forgive us someday, the truth is that forgiveness is already a finished work. All of our sins have been forgiven, and it is up to us to receive this gift by faith. This lifts the burden of condemnation, and it enables us to live in total victory.

Weekly Grace: Redeemed From The Curse Of The Law

Many people think of the Blessing as being circumstantial. In other words, that we are blessed when things are going well; and when things are not going well, we are not blessed. However, the biblical definition of the Blessing is to be empowered to prosper. To be blessed means to be set up for victory and success in every area of life!

The truth is that as born again Believers we are blessedWe are blessed on the mountaintop and we are blessed in the valley. We are blessed when things are going well and we are blessed when things are not going well. The reason is that—no matter the situation—victory has already been made available! Jesus has won us the victory two thousand years ago. And as a result of the finished works of Jesus, you and I are blessed!

The opposite of being blessed is to be cursed. And the definition of being cursed is to be empowered to fail. A person operating under the curse is a person who can never quite get ahead. No matter how hard they struggle and strive, it seems that things are always set up to their disadvantage. Friend, regardless of what your past experiences may have been, do you know the Bible says that Jesus has redeemed us from the curse of the law? As a result of the finished works of Jesus, you and I have been redeemed from the empowerment to fail.

Notice what we have been redeemed from is “the curse of the law.” This means that we have been redeemed from sweating and struggling and performing to try to get into right standing with God or to try to get God to bless us. Because of what Jesus has done for us, you and I now have free access to the boundless blessings of God by faith. As a result of the finished works of Jesus, God no longer deals with us based on our performance. And so we need not to work hard to try to get God to move in our lives; all we need to do is put our faith in Jesus. We are called to trust in the sufficiency of the finished works of Jesus rather than in our own performance.

God deals with us purely through the lens of the finished works of His Son. When God looks at you and me, He sees us in Christ. What He sees when He looks at you and me is Jesus in us. And this means that He sees us perfect. Yes, even at those times when we miss it and come up short, the boundless grace and mercy of our Heavenly Father are always there rushing toward us.

Understanding the goodness of God does not give us license to live in sin. The contrary—understanding the goodness of God actually brings about the very change of heart that causes us to no longer want to live in sin. Truly, it is the goodness of God that leadeth people to repentance. It is the goodness of God that turns us from failure and disappointment to living a live of victory and peace.

PRAYER:

Heavenly Father, I thank You that You are not holding my sins and my failures against me. Thank You for sending Jesus to deliver me from the bondage of past mistakes and from the guilt and shame of performance-based living, and for bringing me into a place of victory and peace. Teach me how to live as who You have created me to be. In Jesus’ name, amen.
