“For it is by grace [God’s remarkable compassion and favor drawing you to Christ] that you have been saved [actually delivered from judgment and given eternal life] through faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [not through your own effort], but it is the [undeserved, gracious] gift of God;…”Ephesians 2:8 (AMPC)

Just as the law was given to Israel through Moses, grace came through Christ. John 1:14 (NKJV) says “and Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” We have been saved by the riches of His grace, and we have been forgiven and accepted in the beloved because of this grace (Ephesians 1:6-7). As believers, we have all received grace through Christ our Lord. But the question is what is this grace? How is grace defined? Understanding this grace, will help us walk in it and appropriate all its benefits. This grace has many shades, and it cannot be defined by one word. Grace is favor, grace is spiritual blessing, and grace is a gift, it is the divine gift of God. God through Jesus Christ has supplied us with an abundance of grace. We have a share, and we have a supply. It is one after another, grace for grace, grace upon grace, heaped. Imagine it and think about this. This grace is undeserved favor, and it is God’s compassion (Ephesians 2:8). Additionally, this grace is sufficient. This grace is lovingkindness and mercy, and it is more than enough for us and always available. This grace is also God’s power which is available (2 Corinthians 12:9).

Scriptures: John 1 (verses 14, 16-17), Ephesians 1:3-14, Ephesians 2:7-8, Acts 20:24, 2 Cor 9:12


  • Thank God for the grace that He has bestowed upon us through Jesus Christ.
  • Thank God for the deliverance and redemption we receive through the riches of His grace.
  • Ask that you will fully grasp this grace.
  • Determine that you will fully embrace this grace and walk in it.
  • Declare that you are full of grace – you have favor, you receive His lovingkindness and compassion, mercy, and spiritual gift.
  • Declare that your sufficiency is of Him. He is more than enough.
  • Say like the Psalmist (Psalm 23:1(NLT)) – “The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need.”
