"Hebrews 4:16 (KJV) - Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need." Our lives as Christians is characterized by recurrent and immeasurable benefits, given to us by God. One of such privileges, is the fact that we can approach the throne of God with boldness. This undeserved privilege is made possible by Jesus Christ - the Son of God. In the Old Testament, the Israelites couldn't enter into the holies of holies (the presence of God) at all. It was only
Do we really know what is going on when we pray? When we bow your head at the family dinner or when we're about to head out for the day? Do you really know the series of events occurring?
