What is grace? Ask any theologian or serious Bible student that question and you will likely hear a two-word answer: unmerited favour. That may be true, but it is not entirely complete. As you will learn in this series, grace surrounds—in fact, envelopes—you every day of your life. It is behind all of God’s actions, it prompts His movements in our direction, it takes the galling exactness out of your response to please Him, and it relieves you from the choking grip of needless guilt. When grace is understood and applied, you are no longer demanding of others. It is at the heart of our eternal salvation; it removes all human effort from the plan; and it is the motivation behind our unity, our harmony, and our tolerance. Small wonder the enemy of our souls works overtime to distort and deny this magnificent truth. Grace: It is truly amazing!
John 1:11–17; 8:30–32, 36
