Understanding the Grace of God

What is the grace of God?
The Grace of God is God’s unflinching, immeasurable and unmerited favour or love of God towards humanity. It is about God’s intervention in our lives through the atonement of Jesus Christ. Grace is about God saving us from sin and death. In addition, grace is also an enabling power of God which helps and strengthens us 24/7. Without the grace of God we are nothing. It is His grace that places significance on us. As such, whatever we want to do or be in life, grace of God is a major requirement. It is the grace of God that makes us to excel in life. We are nothing outside of His grace. With the grace of God at our disposal, we can achieve greater results beyond our widest imagination.
