Throne Room Conduct

And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, "Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean." (Matthew 8:2 NKJV)

The centurion answered and said, "Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed." (Matthew 8:8 NKJV)

As a child of the King, I have the privilege to come boldly before the throne for both grace (getting what I don’t deserve) and mercy (not getting what I do deserve). Yet once there, do I show proper homage to the Sovereign of the Universe and Eternity? Or has familiarity made me too casual? The beggar worshiped. The man of power showed fear for the presence of God. Both called upon Him as Lord—the Master to whom one’s own will is submitted.

Precious Abba, thank You that I have full access to Your throne through the name and blood of Your Son. Let me not fail to acknowledge Your majesty, to submit my will to Yours—to give You my love.
