Here is a truth. Jesus did not die on a cross so that he could continue to speak to you primarily through some other person, movie, or book. Christ came and suffered to be known intimately by you and to open up the the lines of communication blocked by the fall of mankind. He came that He might speak mightily and directly to you. Scripture is clear when it says “Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in time of need.” (Hebrews 4:16) It does not say that we are to approach the throne standing behind a human mediator. ~Adam Stadtmiller
Sometimes the writer needs to become the reader…and that’s exactly where I have found myself in recent days. This passage spoke so loudly and resonated so clearly in my cluttered mind. It’s reminder, profound in it’s simplicity. It’s message, intimate in it’s invitation.
Christ came and suffered to be known deeply by you. The throne God sits on is a throne of grace that will offer you what you need and allow you to receive mercy and find grace.
If you have been running, maybe it’s time to just be still. Clear out the clutter and the noise, the self-help would-have, should-have banter, and get back to the basics.
