Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

into His presence boldly
photo by Lee Keefer

“Now that is a typical way that monarchs functioned.
You approached only when you were invited.
You approached somewhat delicately.
You may have approached going in backwards,
we read in some cases,
or going in bowed over for certain.
In some cases crawling
and typically the king was elevated
so that it was clear to you
that he was way above you
and you were somewhere under his feet.
You approach with a certain hesitancy,
with a certain delicacy
and you certainly didn’t approach
with an attitude demanding anything.

But our God is just the opposite.
He’s absolutely available,
absolutely approachable, gracious,
merciful, compassionate, kind
and you can go into His presence boldly
and ask for whatever you want.
You can go into His presence any time
and not interrupt Him.
In fact, He desires you to do that.”
- John MacArthur

“Let us therefore come boldly
unto the throne of grace…”
- Hebrews 4:16 KJV
