Ephesians 2:3 "All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions--it is by grace you have been saved." Jesus stepped into our shoes and turned aside the wrath of God. Our sins have been condemned and punished in Jesus. He sees us and acts upon us in mercy and love. * Clay talks about the gift of grace being shown and demonstrated in the Old Testament. In Hebrews 4:15 and 16 we see and invitation to approach the throne of grace.
