"Come to me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest." Jesus spoke these words centuries ago, yet still the invitation to approach God to receive rest for wearied and burdened hearts continues to beckon through the ages. The writer of Hebrews echoed those words of Jesus after his death on the cross and resurrection from the dead when he described the God of Christianity as, "One who has been tempted in every way, just as we are--yet was without sin. 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."
Approaching the Throne of Grace is an A to Z compilation of characters, each of them weary and burdened in ordinary ways. Some cry out to God and receive grace, while others receive grace not realizing they were in need.
As each story is told, and the Throne of Grace is approached, grace is woven in and around a community of people. This forms a tapestry of God's grace, poured out and lived out in the lives of each of the characters and the people whose lives they touch.
