Balancing the Holiness and Approachability of God

Text: Hebrews 4:14-16 – In a culture that believes happiness is the ultimate goal in life, Christians tend to focus on the love of God and his approachability – Jesus is our Friend. While this is a true aspect of God’s character, it is not a complete representation of who God is. He is also holy and needs to be approached with reverence and awe – what the Bible calls the “fear” of the Lord. In this message, Pastor Russ helps us understand how to balance God’s holiness and his approachability. How can depraved, sinful creatures approach a perfect, holy God? The answer is through Christ!
