What is grace?
Grace is the undeserved and unwarranted favour of God.
God shows His grace to us in many ways, the greatest being His unconditional love demonstrated in Jesus’ death on the cross for our sins, and His victorious resurrection three days later, making a way for us to have a personal and intimate relationship with Him.
