G is for...........................

Grace

 Grace is mentioned many times in the bible.
Where does grace come from?
God

1 Corinthians 15:10 (New International Version - UK)



10 But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect.


It is God's grace that he freely gives us .

What is Grace ?

a. Divine love and protection bestowed freely on people.


b. The state of being protected or sanctified by the favour of God.

c. An excellence or power granted by God.

d. A thanksgiving prayer said before eating.

e. A name given to a girl .

I do not deserve grace but it is given by God and as a Christian I recieve it thankfully.

Then there is the Amazing song  " Amazing Grace"

This link hopefully takes you to a slightly different version I found.
I thing the song is possibley one of the best Christian songs around.


This is my own interpretation of the word grace and I may be in error I hope I have not offended anyone.

There I knew I could break away from the list . I wonder what next weeks Alphabet Thursday will inspire me to .

"GOD's" "GRACE" is sufficient for me! (2 Corinthians 12:9)

Thanks for reminding us all about the GRACE that GOD has bestowed upon us. None of us in our mortal state are worthy but God's GIFT's are GREATER than anything imaginable to us. It was because of this promise of His "GRACE" that I was healed from cancer in 1996 and that GRACE still sustains me today.

Have a great week!

You are so true. God's grace says it all!

Jenny said...

I love that there has been two grace posts thus far.

May I say, though, that you don't need to apologize here for your opinion.

I have not seen anyone being judgemental in this whole meme.

Perhaps that is part of the grace of it.

Thank you for participating.

A+
