Grace is God’s kindness and gentleness to us when He could have backed us into a corner as guilty sinners and destroyed us without violating His holy character!

Tony Evans

GRACE! If I was to ask what you understood by that word, you would probably tell me ‘Unmerited Favour’. Well, in a sense that’s what Grace is but, it’s more than just Unmerited Favour.

Charis‘ is Greek for Grace and means ‘undeserved kindness or graciousness.’

Grace is simply a divine gift of God given through our Lord Jesus Christ (Titus 2:11) which operates in humans whereby there’s a boundless supply of God’s goodness.

In a sense, there are two Faces of Grace:

The First Face of Grace is best understood in the midst of sin, suffering, and brokenness. God did for us what we could never have done for ourselves. Man was in a desperate need for reconciliation with his creator and God saw this. Mind you, He had it all planned out from the beginning. The reconciliation was not in any way a backup plan. This Face of Grace is seen in Eph. 2:8. It is the gift from God to us through which we are saved. As a result of this gift, salvation is now available to every man.

The Second Face of Grace is about God’s work in you to help you live above sin. More like strength or empowerment instead of your vain self-effort. By accepting His grace, you recognize the fact that you can’t do well on your own so you rely on God’s power to help you live holy. This Face of Grace can help you break free from an addiction, get over the hurt of your past and so on…

Grace makes one to function without struggling.

Dr. E. O. Braimoh

The fact that grace is available and covers you is not a license to sin though (Rom. 6:1-2).

What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?

Romans 6:1‭-‬2 NIV

Wrapping up, grace is fully expressed in a person – JESUS (The Only Way to God). The grace of God appeared when Jesus came to this earth (John 1:14,16-17).

God’s marvelous grace has manifested in person , bringing salvation for everyone.

Titus 2:11 TPT

Grace is actually thrilling beyond words. I couldn’t possibly exhaust what Grace means but I believe the Holy Spirit will shed more light on it. What do you understand by Grace? Which Face of Grace can you relate with the most? Do you want to buttress any of the faces mentioned above? If yes, please leave a comment. I hope you were inspired. Don’t forget to share with someone too.

    Grace is an extension of kindness to the unworthy. We receiving what we ain’t qualified to receive..

    We all are products of grace being that we all enjoy the first face of grace as Romans 5:8 puts it,”But God showed us his love in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us”.

    While the second face as you’ve rightly said is God working in us to help us live above sin,to overcome temptations.

    God’s grace is sufficient for us all.,his love is abundant but he still is a consuming fire 🔥. His grace is not a license to continue in sin.

    Actually,the more sin we go to he shorter is the glory of God in our lives. Sin keeps him away from us ,let’s not abuse God’s grace for our lives.

    Thanks so much GG., God bless you..,this piece is so explicit 😇

    God in man beaten for man.
    God dieing for man.
    God resurrecting for man.
    God paying for the sins of man.
    God dwelling in man.
    God living in man.
    God working through man.

    When I think God-man relationship, I think Grace.

    Grace is an update to Mercy, just the way regular checkup is an upgrade given after treatment.

    The Old testament show GOD as ONE full of Mercy and Truth (Psalm 85:10, 86:15), but in The New Testament it changed to Grace and Truth. John 1:17

    If GOD do not change and HIS LOVE does not change, then it has been planned from Everlasting and will remain forever, and All these are True so Hebrew 4:15-16 gave a Summation. It’s still the same Hospital, but now You know the doctor and have a card there already, go in to get checkups and get medications in time of need.

    GOD BLESS You.

    I’m Glad We’re filling everywhere with JESUS 💖💝
