Come Boldly

Hebrews 4:14-16
Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
It's an amazing enough thought of coming boldly to God on his throne.

This is beyond that.  This is coming boldly for grace.

Grace is only for sinners.  Only sinners need grace.  It's when we've sinned that we are to come boldly confessing our giving in to temptation and sinning.

This brings God great pleasure because God loves mercy!
