Grace To Run Our Race

John 1:16 For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.

John 1:17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. (ESV)

The highest expression of God's love for mankind is grace:

  • Grace is us being given what we do not deserve

  • This is different from mercy, which means not getting what we actually do deserve

  • The Greek phrasing could be translated as "grace upon grace," or "grace in place of grace."

  • This implies that an unlimited amount is available

2 Cor. 9:8 And God is able to make every grace overflow to you, so that in every way, always having everything you need, you may excel in every good work.

Grace is more than: A word - a doctrine - Used as catchy Cliche’
