What Is Grace?
What is grace? That which is freely given. What is “freely given”? Given, not paid. If it was due, wages would be given, but grace would not be bestowed. But if it was really due, then you were good.

But having obtained that grace by faith, you will be just by faith—”for the just lives by faith.”
