DAY 113

A pure spring day. Got to love the sun, the flowers, and the perfect temperature.

We have a holy God. How can we stand before Him? His awesome majesty, brighter than a thousand suns, would turn us into crispy critters if we dared stand before Him on our own.

Praise the Lord, He sent His son, Jesus, as the final sacrifice on the cross. Jesus took our imperfection, our ugly sin, and nailed it to that cross. But He didn't stop there. No he died and went into hell and took the keys of hell and death and rose again to sit at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. Our Lord, Jesus Christ, conquered death that we may have eternal life.

Revelation 1:18
I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

So what do we have to do? How do we come to the Father?

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

And then after we have confessed our sins we can --

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.

Grace. Live in His grace. Look with eyes filled with gratitude. For the Lord has made a way where there was no way.
