Grace is defined by the dictionary as "the free and unmerited favor of God, as manifested in the salvation of sinners and the bestowal of blessings." The Greek word for grace is "charis," which translates to kindness, gift, blessing, and favor. The Hebrew word for grace is "chen," which means favor. Nobody deserves God's grace, but everybody needs it. God made His grace available through Jesus Christ and continues to bestow blessings by grace. It is unmerited favor that cannot be attained by work, effort, or through achievement. Christianity Daily compiled a list of twelve Bible verses that explain God's grace to the undeserving.
