Reflecting on God’s Word . . .

Come boldly to God in prayer.

Hebrews 4:14-16 NLT
So then, since we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to what we believe. This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.

Reflection . . .

Two things for us to do in these verses:

  1. Hold fast to our faith
    • because we have Jesus Christ who identifies with us in everything!
  2. Pray boldly
    • because of what Jesus Christ the Son of God has done for us!

Why hold fast and pray boldly? To receive His mercy and grace when we need it!
