Grace - Grace is God's unmerited favor - His goodness toward those who have no claim on, nor reason to expect, divine favor. The principal manifestation of God's grace is in the form of a gift to those who were condemned.
Scripture Reference - Eph 2:8-9 "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.
Once saved, you have to realize, there is no more condemnation, there is no more trying to get God to do things, or to love you or to accept you, or to let you come into His presence.
Christ lives in you and who He is, you are. He is in you and you are in Him. You are one. John 17:22
You are free to be. You are free to be loved by Him, free to walk in His love and power. Free to live life to its fullness, full of joy, full of grace, full of life. Free from sin, free from guilt through the cross.
Colossians 1:20-23 (Letters from Heaven: By the Apostle Paul)
20 And by the blood of his cross, everything in heaven and earth is restored brought back to himself—back to its original intent, restored to innocence again!21-22Even though you were once distant from him, living in the shadows of your evil thoughts and actions, he reconnected you back to himself. He released his supernatural peace to you through the sacrifice of his own body as the sin-payment on your behalf so that you would dwell in his presence. And now there is nothing between you and Father God, for he sees you as holy, flawless, and restored!
