First and foremost, there's the grace of forgiveness.
OVERUSED & UNDER-DEFINED
We all do wrong - the Bible calls that sin - and that leaves us guilty. Guilty people need to be condemned and punished unless they're forgiven and declared guilt-free. Jesus Christ went to the Cross to carry our sin and to bear our punishment so we could experience radical, comprehensive, and complete forgiveness.
God not only forgives us through grace, but He welcomes us into relationship with Him. He invites us into His family.
He adopts us as His children, and because of that, we now have this Father-child relationship with Him where we can come to Him. We can sit on His lap and bring our needs, concerns, and failures to Him, and He responds as a loving and kind Father.
Sin once separated us from God; by grace, we now have acceptance. Like acceptance, the grace of God's presence means that our Father is not distant. In fact, God is present with us wherever we are, whomever we're with, and whatever we're doing.
