I wanted to look up the definition of Grace, according to Webster’s Dictionary, in order to explain God’s grace.
But by the grace of God, I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me.
Definition of grace:
Unmerited divine assistance is given humans for their regeneration or sanctification. A virtue coming from God. A state of sanctification enjoyed through divine assistance.

TEN SCRIPTURES FOR REFERENCE THAT DEMONSTRATES GOD’S GRACE FOR US
But He gives more grace. Therefore He says, God resists the proud But gives grace to the humble.
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith, and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God, not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.
In him, we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace.
Who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began.
For the law was given through Moses, grace, and truth came through Jesus Christ.
For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.
As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
Friends, can I Encourage you, to think of the ways, God has shown YOU his Grace in your life?
I honestly believe, that if we would spend our quiet time, with God in Prayer, and reading HIS word, our attitudes for his Grace in our lives, would lead us in a closer walk, and a deeper relationship with our Savior.
It is so hard for ME to fathom, the Grace that God shows ME, on a daily basis!
It leads ME to Tears!
I am in Awe, Breathless, and Speechless, for the LOVE he has for ME!
Doesn’t it do the same for you Friends?
I sure do hope it does.
Where would we be today, if we didn’t have God’s Grace!
Beloved, this lost, broken, and hurting world, need Jesus in their life. We may be the ONLY witness of God they see.
May we be a good witness today for them to see the Love of God, so they too may receive his Grace, that has no End.
