gifts of grace just for you

Draw near to the throne of grace.

Let us then approach God’s 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, NIV

By Tami Heim

A culturally relevent image and a life-changing invitation occupy the text of a letter sent to Jewish believers. The author knows men and women ache to understand what will replace the life once governed by law, sacrifice, and tradition.

The answer arrives and it’s pure, simple, and amazing. The revelation transforms hearts and alters life ~ forever.

Jesus Christ.

Compassionate High Priest.

Rescues the lost. Mends what’s broken.

Redeems by grace.

Everything fits like new.

Beloved,  the message and the invitation remain the same.  Confidently drawn near. Listen carefully. Submit wholly. Receive fully. God’s mercy and grace are waiting at the throne for you!

    the grace that covers me is undeserved and unearnable (thank God). it is beyond comprehension and i hesitate to define such a thing except to say that without it… what is there to life? what point is there? and with it… there is everything to life. and there is a point when eternity is determined for each person, without grace, the eternal destination is decided for you and it’s not pretty… with grace. heaven becomes an option for your eternal destination… choose wisely and swim in grace.

    also, give it. more than you can believe you are giving it. stave judgement with the abundance of grace you extend.

    thanks for sharing all of these awesome quotes about grace. you will remember when we were chatting that i read about the loophole of grace… the lesson to me was dont misunderstand grace and try to make her your scapegoat… it doesnt work.

    love you tami.
