Grace was never an afterthought or a plan B in the mind of God. The obvious expectation of God is to ferociously judge transgressors. Historically false gods did such. An angry volcano god wipes out the inhabitants of the island. An angry rain god would not let in rain and the people would suffer from a lack of food and crops. These concepts come from the mind of man. False gods vengefully destroy disobedient people. For God to welcome sinners into a relationship with him through his grace is staggering.
