Biblical Definition Of God's Grace

What is the biblical definition of God's grace?

Grace is getting what you don’t deserve, and not getting what you do deserve. Christians live every day by the grace of God. We receive forgiveness according to the riches of God’s grace. When you surrender your life to God and believe that Jesus paid the ultimate price with His blood on the cross to purchase your redemption for eternity, then you are truly living in the grace of God.


Do you know what the difference is between grace and mercy?


Grace and Mercy: Definitions and Difference

I found a very good explanation at Christianity.com

The Greek word used for mercy is most often eleos (pity, compassion) and for grace is charis(favor). Mercy and grace, as paraphrased from Willmington’s Guide to the Bible, can be differentiated as follows: mercy is the act of withholding deserved punishment, while grace is the act of endowing unmerited favor. In His mercy, God does not give us punishment we deserve, namely hell; while in His grace, God gives us the gift we do not deserve, namely heaven.

Mercy and grace are two sides of a coin – and the coin is love. In the author’s own words, mercy is a compassionate love to the weak, and grace is a generous love to the unworthy. Humans are weak and unworthy – we all need God’s mercy and grace. Mercy takes us to the path of forgiveness, while grace leads us to reconciliation.The Greek word used for mercy is most often eleos (pity, compassion) and for grace is charis(favor).
