From the very beginning the grace of God has been in the earth,it was in the garden of Eden for Adam and Eve,but out of free will they chose to eat from the tree of good and evil.The next time we see the grace of God is with the man named Noah!(Genesis 6:5-9). 5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.6 And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.7 And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.9 These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.
We have a high priest who sits on the right hand of God our Father so that we may go boldly to the throne of grace and find help in time of need(Hebrews 4:14-16). 14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.15 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.16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
