Boldness in time of need

The Christian boldness in time of need


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 4:16)


What isn't the Christian boldness.
  • Control over other believers

Leadership is not an exploitation over those that are led for the benefit of the leader.

Scripture references - Colossians 1:18, Ephesians 1:22


  • Commanding of angels

It is God who shall give His angels order, to keep and protect the believer. The believer is never authorized to command an angel because all things to God are through Jesus Christ.

Scripture references - Psalms 91:11, John 6:44


  • Non-confessing of sin

Boldness to obtain grace is not a license for sinning without remorse. To confess is to acknowledge wrong doing. Then turning away from the wrong doing, with a humble spirit.

Scripture references - 1 John 2:1, Romans 6:15


What is the Christian boldness in time of need?

The boldness is the firm surety that God will do that which we need. So then, the boldness spoken of here is not on our part, but rather let us not linger outside the finish work of Christ by the practice of religious laws and man-made rules, in hope of God's favor.


Rather, let us come into His presence with confidence and freedom. That we may receive mercy and grace in the time of need.


Those who seek mercy and grace are not self-sufficient. We are dependent on God. Our dependency on God should be our gratitude for His love and power, but never arrogant on our part.
