Text:“For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” - Hebrews 4:15,16.
Those who sigh and cry because of the travails they face on earth should not despair of life but should turn to Christ for direction and sustenance. He had declared, “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.” “If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.” (John 6:37; John 7:37) Being the only way to God, he came and preached peace to those who were afar off, and to them that were nigh and through him we have boldness and access with confidence in God. (Ephesians 2:17, 18; 3:12) Since we have as our Master, the Lord Christ, we should not have any difficulty in praying to God in respect of our problems. He stated: “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that askethreceiveth; and he that seekethfindeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” He went further to ask: “Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?” We should mark his closing words on this segment of the passage, “If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?” - Matthew 7:7-11
