Grace is God’s working in our lives to do what we cannot do ourselves. We could not save ourselves from the penalty of sin. So God did it. By His grace. We cannot deserve forgiveness. So God gave it. By His grace. We cannot live a godly life in our own power. So God gives us His power. By His grace. We cannot draw forth the strength to handle all the difficult times throughout the various stages of our lives. So God handles them. By His grace.
