God’s grace is most revealed through the meaning of the 8th day. It is God’s desire to extend grace to all people. It is only by receiving and responding to grace they can achieve salvation. Grace and salvation come only through Christ.
What is grace? Do we need grace for salvation? Is it for all people? How does this day figure into the plan?
Most of humanity would be lost without what this day portrays for them. All will have the opportunity to live with the knowledge of God and His way and be judged with fairness and grace.
