God's Grace
Eph 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 
Grace is unearned favor. Christians are saved and blessed of God because of grace rather than merit. In other words, we did nothing to earn our salvation. God, out of the goodness of His heart, caused the grace that brings salvation to appear to all people. Grace is a free gift that is to be accepted by faith. Work and serve God because you love him, but not because you are trying to earn His love or salvation. Accept God's grace. Here are some blessings of grace:
A. We are justified by grace. 
Rom 3:24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
B. God's grace is sufficient to put you over the tests and trials of life. 
2 Cor 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
C. Our gifting to minister is by grace. 
1 Cor 15:10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
D. Because of grace Christians are no longer under the law. 
Gal 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain. 
Rom 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. 15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.
E. God's grace brings salvation to all men. 
     Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
Sample PrayerFather, thank you for your grace. In Jesus Name, Amen.
