What Is Meant By Grace?
Grace is the wonderful gift from God that was given to believers through the mercy, sacrifice, and love of Jesus Christ (Romans 3:22-24). Whereas karma is all about getting or receiving what you deserve. When it comes to grace, it is about getting what you don’t deserve and is directly opposite of what karma teaches. Grace means God’s love as well as His forgiveness of our sins and His forging of a new covenant with mankind so that we can be reconciled with Him. Further, grace is not something that can be earned as it is a free loving gift to us from God. Whereas karma is all about getting what you deserve for what you have either done yourself or inherited from a family member.
Grace is all about love and forgiveness from God, and karma is about the universe paying you back for something. The best explanation of the word grace is unmerited favor or unconditional love. The original use of the word grace in the Old Testament of the Bible is “hen” meaning favor in God’s sight or in the eyes of the Lord. In the New Testament of the Bible the use of “Charis” is the term used for grace which is translated from Greek. The word of grace means kindness from God as well as divine assistance which is given to humans from God.
Importance Of God’s Grace:
In the Christian faith, God’s grace is considered as truly amazing, but before that it is important to understand the meaning of grace properly. Grace is granted to anyone who accepts Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, is born again, invites the Holy Spirit into their heart, and believes in God for all things. At the time you accept Jesus Christ into your life you are grated salvation from sin and at the same time anyone who does this will enjoy abundant life. God freely gives all grace and, He gives His great love at all times. People always need to accept God’s grace to make their life more beautiful and presentable. With God’s grace, we can transform our desires, behaviors, and motivations (Titus 2:11-12) to be in line with the Christian lifestyle.
Furthermore, grace is the foundation that enables and powers everything in the Christian life. To continue, grace is the basis for our identity in Christ (1 Cor. 15:10), and our holiness is from the grace of God (2 Tim 1:9). Moreover, grace is known as an awakening to life as well as pure love when we embrace God. Grace gives us strength for living (2 Tim. 2:1; Heb. 13:9), and our hope of eternal life rests in the grace of God (Rom. 5:21; Eph. 2:5-8). Our lives are no longer controlled by sin, and we can now live a life of faith given to us by God’s grace.
With God’s grace, one can enjoy happiness as well as it is an effective way to be at peace. Grace does not only allow people to get peace of mind, but also allows them to experience the miraculous benefits of God’s love for us. With this, one can experience real life-changes. With God’s grace, one can get freedom from addiction, pride, resentment, emotions, bitterness, wrong attitudes, etc. this will help people to get free from bad habits, failures, hang-ups, as well as hurts because God offers freedom. In general, every aspect of our Christian life is completely based on faith and God’s grace, the people who prefer to justify their sin don’t know the benefits as well as energetic factors associated with real grace.
Additionally, some people may be confused about Christianity, and the difference between God’s mercy and God’s grace. To continue, these two words also have a similar meaning as well as similar expressions of God’s love but somewhat differ from their meaning. Alternatively, in God’s mercy, people are spared punishment and other aspects that they do deserve but have received from Christ. Thankfully, grace was given to us all from Christ. It is essential to experience a peaceful lifestyle. Further, grace refers to His love as well as protection, care, and love for mankind. God’s grace is the important factor to experience joy in every moment and God created us humans, so His grace is essential for us to be forgiven of our sins by the death of Jesus Christ who is seated at the right hand of God in Heaven.
How to Get Free From Sickness:
Furthermore, grace is a gift from our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus. To obtain grace from God is by being a born again Christian and having Faith in God’s Holy Word. “Grace came [to us], 2,000 years ago. Your salvation and healing come by grace, and they are received and appropriated by faith (Romans 4:16). Don’t focus on the symptoms; focus on what God said. Declare that you’re healed!” (KCM.org 2018). Moreover, use God’s medicine for your healing by believing His Word that you are healed. (KCM.org & Proverbs 4:20) In John 10:10 Jesus says “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
Jesus bore every sickness, disease on the cross (Matthew 8:17). “Christ carried the burden of our sins. He was nailed to the cross, so we would stop sinning and start living right. By his cuts and bruises you are healed.” (1 Peter 2:24). Sickness is a curse and Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law. (Galatians 3:13) When it comes to curses, satan does not want people to receive grace and redemption from our Lord and Saviour. To continue, you have to believe in God’s Word to receive your healing and know that God sent His Son Jesus to redeem us (KCM.org). And, grace is from Jesus “for the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.” (John 1:17)

Lastly, grace is free in Christ and having the love of God is a life filled with purpose. Hence, the saying Blessed and Highly Favored. With God’s grace one can overcome obstacles. To continue, God so loved the world that He gave His only Son to be sacrificed for all of mankind’s sins. (John 3:16) By doing this God gave true love to everyone. Overall, it is the ultimate gift that can only be given by God. The lavish kindness is so glorious, as well as amazing. This can allow anyone to be patient and strong in any situation just knowing what God has done for us.
