TORN – Day 21- Friday, 3/25/22
Throne of Grace
“Since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand.” (Romans 5:1-2)
Today’s Scripture reading is Isaiah 6:1-8
Picture it: you are standing before the throne of God himself. What gives you the right? In the palace of any king, one must be introduced and invited. In today’s reading, we see how Isaiah responded: “Woe is me, for I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips” (Isaiah 6:5). But then his lips were touched with the burning coal. Suddenly, he has the boldness to volunteer for an unknown assignment: “Here am I! Send me” (Isaiah 6:8).
What made the difference? Mercy and grace. The throne of justice and power has become the throne of grace.
Prayer: “God, your mercy and grace surround me. Give me the boldness I need to…”
