You shall be careful to present my offering...
Through Jesus we now can approach the throne of grace in gladness, and boldly, for we are His children, redeemed by the sacrifice of our Savior. We have access any time, for any matter.
But I know that I, like many, probably take that for granted much of the time.
Yes, we have unlimited access. Yes, He is concerned about all that concerns us. Yes. He loves us and wants us to approach Him.
But do we always do it with the reverence and awe, with the praise and thankfulness that we should?
I cannot say that I do, after all I am a sinful being in a fallen world; it took the death of His Son for me to be able to come before Him, acceptable in His sight.
Yes, I want to come before my Father continuously, for both praise and worship, to ask for wisdom and mercy.
But let me never take it for granted.
For where would I be if He took me for granted?
