The Gift of Grace
Jesus Christ robed himself with our flesh, was born, and grew up experiencing life as we do. He was tempted like we are yet without sin, He experienced life how we experience life, and He understands what we go through. Jesus didn't have to come, be born, and live life as we do, but He did it for the ultimate goal of being sacrificed for us so that we may have eternal life through Him. Because of this act of love, He offers the gift of grace to us. We did nothing to receive this gift, but His grace is given to us when we accept the gift of salvation. We now have the privilege of coming boldly to the throne of grace to find mercy and grace in our times of need. God's grace has and will never change towards us. The same grace that was sufficient for Paul is the same grace that will be sufficient for us. The gift of grace is truly the greatest gift of God's Son, Jesus Christ, because it's His grace that can help us resist temptations and press on to serve Him with our lives. We need God's grace in our lives, and we are privileged to have it because of Jesus' love towards us.
For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
Hebrews 4:15-16 (KJV)
