Holy God, Sinful People

The bold are not necessarily impetuous; boldness can be demonstrated through a delayed prayer of a committed intercessor!

Moses interceded; He went to holy God on the behalf of sinful people.

“Now it came to pass on the next day that Moses said to the people, ‘You have committed a great sin. So now I will go up to the Lord; perhaps I can make atonement for your sin.’ Then Moses returned to the Lord and said, ‘Oh, these people have committed a great sin, and have made for themselves a god of gold! Yet now, if You will forgive their sin—but if not, I pray, blot me out of Your book which You have written (Exodus 32:30-32 NKJV).”

God wrote the book of life. With boldness, Moses asked the author’s forgiveness for a great sin.

Sin separates us from holy God. Seeing our great sin and weakness, dare we approach Him?

“Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need (Hebrews 4:14-16 NKJV).”
