Amazing Grace how sweet the sound?

Updated: Feb 12, 2020

What does Grace really mean?


The contemporary Christian definition of grace has been; it is God's unmerited favor.

We don't deserve it and that we can't earn it, but that God gives unmerited favor.


"For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God" Eph. 2:8


The Term "Grace" in New Testament Greek is simply translated "Gift". (Charos)

If we compare the definitions between the Greek and the contemporary understandings of grace (charos), we will see that the contemporary definition is more of a definition of an action process of giving or a verb. While in the Greek the definition is a noun. (Gift)


If we define what Grace is as a noun, then what is the Gift God is giving to us?

Well we can look into the scriptures and see what has God given to us.


"For God So loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life". John 3:16


God gave us the Gift of Jesus. Jesus gave us the Holy Spirit after His resurrection. So the Grace or the Gift of God is God Himself.


It is His Divinity that operates in humans to regenerate and sanctify, to inspire virtuous impulses, and to impart strength to endure trial and resist temptation.


Hallelujah Thank you God for the Gift of Yourself.
