What is grace?

 

Jerry Bridges the author of The Pursuit of Holiness defines grace as:

God’s favor through Jesus Christ to people who deserve the wrath of God. Grace is receiving the blessing of God through Jesus Christ to those who deserve the curse of God.

 

The late G. S. Bishop described grace as:

“GRACE IS A PROVISION for men who are so fallen that they cannot lift the axe of justice, so corrupt that they cannot change their own natures, so averse to God that they cannot turn to Him, so blind that they cannot see Him, so deaf that they cannot hear Him, so dead that He Himself must open their graves and lift them into resurrection.”
