Grace is one of the most beautiful words in the English language. It is an idea that mends relationships, a word that leads to providing a meal or opening your wallet. It is what we crave most when our guilt is exposed and what we are hesitant to extend when we were confronted with the guilt of others.
Grace is how God interacts with his people and how Christians should interact with others – from our spouse, to our kids, to coworkers, to total strangers.
Grace is bigger than compassion or forgiveness. We see it on the cross. It gets to the heart of the Christian faith.
