Imagine… ~ January 31


Love so intense it defies description

Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. Hebrews 4:16

In this passage I see God upon a throne that sits at the gates of heaven. Majestic columns vanish into purest white clouds, supporting a ceiling that cannot be seen. I see the columns as representing God’s love, which is strong and never waivers; I see the unseen ceiling as the height of His love—we cannot begin to fathom its enormity. And yet, in the face of its awesomeness—His awesomeness—God invites us to approach Him with confidence.

We can approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, because Jesus took our sins to the cross with Him and His shed blood poured God’s mercy upon us. We have only to believe he is the Son of God in order to partake of that mercy and grace. If we believe in Jesus and turn toward Him, loving Him as He loves us, we can approach God’s throne with confidence.

Imagine God on His throne; the wind of His Holy Spirit blowing his flowing hair and rustling His robes of white. His eyes are full of love and one hand reaches toward you and beckons you come to Him. On His knee then; your head resting against His chest; you listen to the powerful beating of His heart. Imagine…

    • Bob: As I read this to Sherry this morning, when I got to the last paragraph, I couldn’t finish. I was sobbing too hard.
      God’s love is sometimes more than I can comprehend.
