Grace is the free and unmerited favor of God, as manifested in the salvation of sinners and the bestowal of blessings. Each of us have been granted the grace and favor of God in our lives that surrounds us everyday. We could never earn grace on our own as imperfect as we are. An example of grace and unmerited favor could be receiving a promotion on a job that you did not earn or surviving a car accident that should have been detrimental to your life.
Grace is most needed and best understood in the midst of our personal trials and tribulations. The rules and laws of our society gives a consequence for every wrong doing and rewards good behavior, grace says you and your imperfections are undeserving but you are worth it in the eyes of the creator.
Grace can never be earned, It is one of God’s gifts to us. The only thing that could possibly keep God’s grace away from us is if we pull away the cup. He can only fill us to overflowing if we’re willing to stand there and receive it. Otherwise, we’ll miss out on all that God has to offer.
In a beautiful moment he laid down his life to grant us grace and the gift of eternal life.
