I’ll share one of my favourite hymns today.
I’m constantly reminded of the unfailing promise in Hebrews 4:14-16:
Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Knowing that the gift of grace is free, and that God’s mercy is ever-abounding does not give me a leeway to do sin; after all, I will be forgiven, is what most Christians, myself included, are tempted to do.
Only when we focus on the fact that it was no easy task to bear the cross, shed His blood in our place, all so that we could fully tap into the presence of His Father can we fully appreciate that this grace was priceless, like someone offering you…. well, offering you eternal life (after all, isn’t that what is considered priceless to many? 😂😂😂) at no price whatsoever.
He has offered us eternal life through Him, and no matter what the devil says, or tells us innour hearts that makes us despair, we can look up to Jesus and be reminded of His love, grace and mercy to take us through all tribulations in this world.
Well, here goes. Have a blessed Sunday ✌✌
Before the Throne of God Above
Author: Charitie L. Bancroft
Before the throne of God above
I have a strong and perfect plea.
A great high Priest whose Name is Love
Who ever lives and pleads for me.
My name is graven on His hands,
My name is written on His heart.
I know that while in Heaven He stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart.
When Satan tempts me to despair
And tells me of the guilt within,
Upward I look and see Him there
Who made an end of all my sin.
Because the sinless Savior died
My sinful soul is counted free.
For God the just is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me.
Behold Him there the risen Lamb,
My perfect spotless righteousness,
The great unchangeable I AM,
The King of glory and of grace,
One in Himself I cannot die.
My soul is purchased by His blood,
My life is hid with Christ on high,
With Christ my Savior and my God!

P.S to see to the video, click here ✋ to watch it on YouTube. There are a lot of people who have made versions of it, but Selah’s version is the best (to me, that is 😂).
