Grace

When I was in college, I took a philosophy course. One day we talked about what grace is and how it affects our lives. Grace is one of those things that is tricky to define; look it up and you’ll see many meanings for it.

I found these quotes on grace both humbling and wonderful. I hope you do, too.

Grace isn’t a little prayer you chant before receiving a meal. It’s a way to live. The law tells me how crooked I am. Grace comes along and straightens me out.”
Dwight Lyman Moody

 Grace is free sovereign favor to the ill-deserving.”     

Benjamin B. Warfield

 The grace of the spirit comes only from heaven, and lights up the whole bodily presence.”      

Charles Haddon Spurgeon

“For grace is given not because we have done good works, but in order that we may be able to do them.”
Saint Augustine Of Hippo

Grace is the love that gives, that loves the unlovely and the unlovable.”
Oswald C. Hoffmann

Grace comes into the soul, as the morning sun into the world; first a dawning, then a light; and at last the sun in his full and excellent brightness.  ”

Thomas Adams

The law detects, grace alone conquers sin.”

Saint Augustine Of Hippo

When grace moves in… guilt moves out.”
Max Lucado
