Some define grace as God’s unmerited favor… I define grace as…
“God’s abundant mercy. His desire is to not only save us from the penalty of eternal death (through the sacrifice of His dear son Jesus), but to empower us to live our daily lives in a self-controlled, upright, and Godly manner. God’s grace is His strength, His power, His wisdom, and His love freely extended to all and within all who call upon Jesus as Lord and Savior.”
Grace is the ACTION to God’s LOVE!
“But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”
James 4:6 (NKJV)
