It was the grace of God but what does the Bible mean when it mentions ‘grace’? In 2 Corinthians 8:9 we read: ‘For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.’
Grace is God’s favour. We cannot earn it. We certainly don’t deserve it. In fact, the problem is that each of us have only merited God’s disfavour because we are all sinners by nature.
