How do i approach the throne of grace?

Heb 4:16, "Let us then approach the THRONE OF GRACE with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need."

How do i "approach" the throne of grace?
  • Do i go into a room and close the door?
  • bow down on my knees?
  • lie on my back?
  • read my bible more ?
  • pray more?
  • go see the Pastor?
  • fellowship more?
  • give more?
Not really, approaching the throne of grace is an attitude not necessarily an action...those things can be good in and of themselves but they are not what the writer of Hebrews is trying to get us to do...

The whole book of Hebrews is an awesome look at what we have in Christ in the New Covenant....with THIS thinking, with THIS new mindset, with THIS understanding, he says, approach the throne of grace....

you can approach the throne of grace...
  • in the car
  • on the beach
  • in the toilet (sounds bad but its true :-)
  • in that meeting
  • falling asleep
  • running
  • jumping
  • sitting
  • climbing
  • sky diving
  • swimming
  • watching TV

Believe right and the grace and mercy you need will flow abundantly to you. You will receive help, only don't try and work for it, rest, believe and watch what God does...

Oh and BTW....when you do believe right, you approach the throne of grace...WITH CONFIDENCE!!!! because every promise God has given you is ALWAYS yes and amen in Jesus!!
