Grace

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 - Hebrews 4:15-16 (NLT). We hope that you find encouragement and endurance for your journey here.
