The Throne of God is a powerful image that appears throughout the Bible, which represents God’s majesty, authority, and holiness. On the other hand, it also reveals God’s grace, mercy, and love for humankind.

Today, Jesus Christ, our High Priest, and King, has opened the way for us to enter God’s presence and receive His blessings – irrespective of who you are, we all can worship God at His throne and reflect His glory in our lives.

Irrespective of the trials, temptations, or triumphs you face, you can always come to the throne of God and find grace and help in times of need.

Key Takeaway to The Throne of God

  • The Throne of God: We have access to the throne of God through faith in Jesus Christ, who died for our sins and rose again to sit at God’s right hand.

Anchor Bible Verse of the day – Hebrews 12:2

Our anchor verse of Hebrews 12:2 tells us to look to Jesus as our example and source of strength in our Christian journey.

Why is that? Because Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith, who initiates and completes our salvation, already exalted and glorified by God as Lord and Savior.

Key Explanations

  • Author and Finisher of Our Faith: Jesus is the one who both started our faith and will bring it to completion. He is the source of our faith and the one who will ensure that we persevere to the end.
  • Endured the Cross: Jesus willingly accepted the ultimate sacrifice for our sins. He didn’t shy away from pain or shame; instead, He embraced them for our sake.
  • Sat on the Right Hand of the Throne of God: Jesus’s position at the right hand of the Father signifies His authority and power. He is now the mediator between God and humanity.

Reflection on The Throne of God

The throne of God is a symbol of God’s sovereignty, majesty, and power. It is the place where He reigns over all creation, where He judges the world, and where He displays His glory.

It’s also the place where He invites us to draw near to Him, to worship Him, and to receive His grace.

The Bible tells us that Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, endured the cross and despised the shame for the joy that was set before Him. And what was that joy? It was to sit down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Jesus accomplished His mission of saving us from our sins and reconciling us to God by His death and resurrection. And now He is exalted to the highest place of honor and authority, where He intercedes for us and prepares a place for us.

But Jesus is not only on the throne of God; He is also the throne of God.

In Revelation 22:1, we read

And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb.

See, the Lamb is Jesus, who was slain for our sins and who lives forevermore. He is the source of life, light, and love for all who believe in Him. He is the one who gives us access to the throne of God by His blood.

Listen, when we repent of our sins and trust in Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we become His temple, His dwelling place. He comes to live in us by His Spirit, and He rules over us with His love. He transforms us into His image and makes us partakers of His divine nature. He fills us with His joy and peace, and He empowers us to do His will.

The throne of God is also our hope for the future. One day, we will see Him face to face, and we will worship Him in spirit and truth. We will join the heavenly chorus of angels and saints, who sing:

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honor and glory and blessing! (Revelation 5:12).

We will cast our crowns before Him, and we will say:

You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created. (Revelation 4:11).

As we reflect on The Throne of God, consider how challenges, though difficult, can lead to profound victories. Just as Jesus endured, we too can overcome.
