Access to the Throne

Our testimony is that we have access to the throne of God.  Many believers have not taken advantage of this beautiful reality, though they should.  Several passages in Scripture share this fact.

“For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.” – Eph. 2:18

“In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.” – Eph. 3:12

“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” – Heb. 4:16

I am sure that it would be a great honor to stand before men of high stature in our world, but there is nothing comparable to the time spent before God.  Imagine a situation of a person receiving an invitation to meet the president and declining.  It would be unthinkable.  This behavior is exactly what people do to the Lord.  They turn away His invitation to meet in prayerful repentance and devotion.

We should not neglect the invitation to the Lord to meet with Him in worship and prayer every day.  Even, multiple times within a day.  Let us make a resolution, and follow through with it, to come before the throne of God every day and speak to Him in prayer.
