The Definition of Grace

“So then, since we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to what we believe. This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin.

So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.” – Hebrews 4:14-16 (NLT)

Jesus understands.  He knows of our fears, experienced our temptations and assumed punishment for our sins in the most powerful act of radical love possible.  He knows we’re flawed, and broken, yet nonetheless He laid the path for us to boldly approach Him with our petitions of forgiveness; such is the true definition of Grace.
