In this message Chuck talks about how Jesus Christ had the perfect balance between Grace and Truth. Christ was never unbalanced by being too hard and ungracious, or by being fearful and not saying a hard truth when it was needed to be said. His perfect example of balance should cause us to worship and imitate Him.
