Grace, in Christian theology, is the spontaneous, unmerited gift of the divine favour in the salvation of sinners, and the divine influence operating in individuals for their regeneration and sanctification. With the message that forgiveness and redemption are possible regardless of sins committed and that the soul can be delivered from despair through the mercy of God. In the dictionary, grace is defined as courteous goodwill, meaning, it’s not asked for nor deserved, but is freely given.
While enduring today’s trying times, please enjoy “Amazing Grace” as one of the most recognizable songs in the English-speaking world.
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”
