  • A Time for Confidence Media Resource by

    Hebrews 4:14-5:10

    As Christians, our confidence centers on the gospel of Jesus Christ. As the author of Hebrews states, “we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus” (Heb. 10:19). As a result, we can “draw near to the throne of grace” with boldness and confidence (Heb. 4:16). Apart from Christ, we have no standing before God. Our sins condemn us. But if we trust in Christ alone for our salvation, we can be confident in knowing that our standing before God is secure. In this session, Dr. Thomas expounds upon our confidence in the gospel.
