I have no catchy title or opening line for this article because grace needs no formal introduction. It is in itself something beautiful. It is one of the hardest concepts for some people to grasp but one of the most wonderful realities to behold.

Grace, by definition is “the free and unmerited favor of God, as manifested in the salvation of sinners and the bestowal of blessings.” Most people love to hear the word free, but if you have much experience with it, many times the word deviously hides stipulations and requirements.

I would like to tell you how I got there.
