Grace is a gift from God through the faith in Jesus Christ. You don’t earn it, you can’t pay it back, and you don’t deserve it. It is a (free) gift offered through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. We live in the saving grace of God through Jesus Christ. We embrace it in humility and amplify it daily in our covenant relationship.
