Let us have confidence, then, and approach God’s throne, where there is grace. There we will receive mercy and find grace to help us just when we need it.” (Hebrews 4:16, GNB)

I like the way the GNB translates this verse.  We can approach God’s throne “where there is grace.”  So simple and yet so profound.  Grace is found in its truest form in one and only one place:  at the throne of God.  We can find hints of grace in nature and in our experience and through people, but to find true grace, grace that is capable of taking away our sins and declaring us righteous, we will only find that as we come to the throne of God.  We will find it nowhere else and in nothing else and in no other philosophical or religious system.
