Faith and Grace Part 3

Faith and Grace part 3

Jesus our Savior, Redeemer, Lord, King of Kings, Word, Bread of Life, Lamb of God, Messiah, Prince of Peace, Good Shepherd, Way, Truth, Life...is also our High Priest. He made the sacrifice (which was Himself) and put it on the altar in heaven on our behalf. Because of our faith in Him and that sacrifice, we have a right relationship with God (righteousness).

In Hebrews 4:14-16 we can see how our High Priest lived a life on earth just like we do, so He knows what we are dealing with down here. Right now He is seated on a throne in heaven but not one of judgement, it's a throne of grace! Not only that but He tells us in vs 17 that we have access to this throne of grace whenever! We can go there to get the mercy and grace we need to make it through. Thing is, we have to GO THERE to get it.

There are only 2 ways I can think of that would get me to heaven right now and since the first option is disqualified as I still draw breath, I look at option 2, faith. I can believe the Word of God and develop my spirit by feeding it on the Word of God so that when I am reading, studying, praying and paying attention I can hear from God in my spirit. Just like if I was standing in front of His throne. You can too. This is living by faith, believing to hear from God and acting upon what you here.

Faith is the life we live, the longer we are in it, the better at it we get.

Live well,

Vern
