grace

Grace is the free, undeserved goodness and favor of God to mankind.”Matthew Henry

Grace binds you with far stronger cords than the cords of duty or obligation can bind you. Grace is free, but when once you take it, you are bound forever to the Giver and bound to catch the spirit of the Giver. Like produces like. Grace makes you gracious, the Giver makes you give.” –E. Stanley Jones

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. Ephesians 2:8,9

rain

Rain is grace; rain is the sky descending to the earth; without rain, there would be no life. John Updike

But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike. Matthew 5: 44,45

grace

My trust in God flows out of the experience of his loving me, day in and day out, whether the day is stormy or fair, whether I’m sick or in good health, whether I’m in a state of grace or disgrace. He come to me where I live and loves me as I am. Brennan Manning

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God– not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

By judging others we blind ourselves to our own evil and to the grace which others are just as entitled to as we are.”   Dietrich   Bonhoeffer

grace & truth

GRACE is not an excuse, for a sloppy life, it’s the Power to overcome it! Joyce Meyer

Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Father’s Son, will be with us in truth and love. 2 John 1:3

refreshing

How magnificent is grace! How malignant is guilt! How sweet are the promises! How sour is the past! How precious and broad is God’s love! How petty and narrow are man’s limitations! How refreshing is the Lord. Charles Swindoll

I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint. Jeremiah 31:25

grace

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see. John Newton


God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. Ephesians 2:8-9
