Grace
is,
The love and favor of God,
which we did not earn,
but which He gives us freely;
 also, a state of reconciliation to God;
also, favorable influence of God;
divine influence or
the influence of the Spirit,
in renewing the heart
and restraining
from sin.


...For by grace are ye saved
through faith;
and that not of yourselves:
it is the gift of God:
Not of works,
lest any man should boast...

Ephesians 2:8-9
