Daily Bible Nugget #49, Hebrews 4:16

The Nugget:

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

My Comment:

Here is a prayer promise that is very comforting and instructive. While some very sincerely teach that we must approach God or Jesus through mediators like the saints in heaven, or Mary the mother of Jesus, we read nothing of such teaching in the Bible, but the very opposite. In fact, Isaiah 63:16 clearly states that those in heaven are ignorant of us, though Scripture elsewhere teaches they are even now very much alive (Luke 20:38). God is eager to hear our prayers. We can come boldly to Him to obtain mercy and to find grace to help in time of need. Take advantage of this great truth in the Bible.

This is the final memory verse I gave to my high school Sunday school class on the subject of prayer. The next set of verses are verses about salvation. The final set of verses will be about Christian growth and living. If any of you who read these “Daily Bible Nuggets” have managed to start memorizing these sets of verses, I know you will be encouraged in your spiritual growth and ministry to others as a result. If you have not attempted to memorize any of these Scriptures, it is never too late to start! The verses about prayer I have shared in this series are the following fifteen passages: James 4:10. James 5:16. Matthew 6:5-8. John 16:24. Mark 11:24. Luke 11:9. Matthew 17:20. James 1:5. 1 John 3:22, 23. 1 John 5:14, 15. 1 Thessalonians 5:17. Philippians 4:6-9. Philippians 4:13. Philippians 4:19. Hebrews 4:16.

For those who desire to DIG DEEPER into this subject:

(1) Consult the cross references given in Nelson’s Cross Reference Guide to the Bible on page 1428 for Hebrews 4:16.

(2) Consult the cross references given in The New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge on page 1447 or in Logos 5 Bible software for Hebrews 4:16.

(3) Lacking access to those two resources, consult the cross references for this passage as I have developed them as given below:

One Response to Daily Bible Nugget #49, Hebrews 4:16

  1. ken sagely says:

    heb 4.16 let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that may obtain mercy,
    and find grace to help in time of need. i am thankful today i have an high priest who
    continually interceding for me and all the body of christ. how much i need him!! vs
    14 since then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, jesus
    the son of god, let us hold fast our profession. vs 15 for we have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points
    tempted without sin. very encouraging verse about our lord jesus christ. ” he identi
    fies with our struggles living in this world, .
    he promises his help in our in vs16 as priest christ sustains the believer,
    and provides against habitual practice of sin. “the throne of grace is the place of
    blessing, the place where a gracious god dispenses the needed benefits. and we
    can come “boldly. there are several scriptures on boldness, acts 4.13
    now when they saw the boldness of peter and john, and perceived that they were un
    learned and ignorant men, they marveled; and they took knowledge of them, that they
    had been with jesus. acts 4.33 and with great power gave the apostles witness of the
    resurrection of the lord jesus; and great grace was upon them all. eph 2.18 for through him we both have access by one spirit unto the father. eph 3.12 in whom we have bold ness and access with confidence by the faith of him. eph 6.19 pauls asks for prayer
    that he might “speak the word with all boldness” heb 10.19 a great promise, having
    therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of jesus,”he can
    sympathsize, therefore,like no one else and help us like no one else.

    there are alot of verses in the bible about the grace of god. jn 1.14 says the lord is full
    of “grace and truth”. vs 16 “of his fulness have we all received,and grace for grace”vs
    17 the origin of grace, “grace and truth came by jesus christ” in acts 13.43 he encour
    ages the early church to ” continue in the grace of god. acts 15.11 but we believe that
    through the grace of the lord jesus christ we shall be saved, even as they. eph 2.8-9
    one of the most important verses in the bible vs 8 for by grace are ye saved through
    faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of god. vs 9 not of works lest any man
    should boast.

    there are many verses on mercy. eph 2.4 “god, who is rich in mercy” titus 3.5 not by
    works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us,
    by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the holy spirit; vs6 which he shed on
    us abundantly through jesus christ our saviour; vs that being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. james 3.17 but the wisdom
    that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle,and easy to be entreated, full of
    mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. my favorite hymn
    “at calvary” the last stanza ” o the love that drew salvations plan! o the grace that bro’t
    it down to man! o the mighty gulf that god did span at calvary. mercy there was great
    and grace was free, pardon there was multiplied to me, there my burdened sould found liberty at calvary. praise the lord!
