Grace is unmerited divine assistance given to us for our sanctification. It is when we are given what we don't deserve just because of God's love for us.
2 Corinthians 12:9 ''But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.''
Grace helps us to handle things that are not under our control in life. We could kick and scream, be angry all the time and be a person not fit for company. What kind of example would that be? My friend told me, 'even tho your cough is part of your life, thank you for handling it with grace.' That's a compliment that I hope to continue to display.
Grace gives us an accepting peace that helps us to endure the rough moments. Grace gives a calming effect on you and others, instead of panic and chaos. God's saving grace is all we need to accept to get us through this race of life. We must remember it is free, not earned or deserved. 'Grace is more than a prayer we say before dinner.' It is a gift that makes us more like Him each day.
