After 40 years of reading the Bible, I realize now that I still do not fully understand grace. Grace as understood by Christians is unmerited favor from God. That means we can not earn it or attain it but it is given to us by God.It is God's free gift through Jesus Christ revealed to us through the Holy Spirit in His Holy Bible.
Realizing that make me realize that God also give us faith and the works that we do also come from Him.
Grace and truth is found in Jesus Christ. The Bible says that while we were yet sinners Jesus died for us (Romans 5:8). Most of us here alive today were born at least the year 1910 and after. Our birth came about 2000 years after Jesus Christ died on the cross. That means even before we know about Jesus, God gave Jesus to us as the sacrifice for our sins.
I hope you too will know about this grace that God bestows on us. I will continue to meditate on God's grace which is truly amazing as one song says too.
