Text: Hebrews 9:23-28
How we approach God depends a lot on how we understand God to be. Is God a passive observer, a cruel judge, or the One who is determined to reconcile the world to Himself through Jesus Christ? In the person of Jesus Christ, we see clearly that God has seen fit to forgive our sins through self-sacrifice and bring salvation to us and the world. Let us approach God, then, with confidence in His love and mercy, believing that He will complete the work He has begun in forgiving our sins and establishing a lasting justice and peace in our world. When things in our world or even in our own lives look bleak, remember who God is and let your faith be strengthened in that knowledge!
