Bible Term: Grace

Grace is getting good things when we don’t deserve them. When we are given a gift, it’s an act of grace.

The good things God gives us are through his grace. God’s grace is unearned, undeserved, and unmerited favor.

The promise of heaven is not something we deserve or can earn, but is given to all who follow Jesus as an act of grace.

Compare and contrast grace to mercy.

Key verse about Grace: She will give you a garland to grace your head and present you with a glorious crown” (Proverbs 4:9, NIV).
