Amazing Grace

Grace is used in a few different ways in The Bible, but in relation to salvation it means God's mercy to sinful humanity. Grace cannot be earned, nor has there ever been a human being good enough to deserve it (other than Jesus Christ, but He never sinned, so therefore grace does not apply to Him). It is God's gift of forgiveness.

Grace is forgiveness for sin - not a license to sin. For example, in John 8:11 Jesus Christ forgave a sinner by grace, but He also then commanded the person to "leave your life of sin."

Jordan River "But because of His great love for us, God, Who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions - it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages [see Why Were You Born? and If You Could Create A World] He might show the incomparable riches of His grace, expressed in His kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." (Ephesians 2:4-10)

"What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! We died to sin; how can we live it any longer? Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? [the Jordan River, near where John The Baptist baptized, is shown in the photograph above] We were therefore buried with Him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through The Glory of The Father, so too may we live a new life. If we have been united with Him in His death, we will certainly also be united with Him [see The Last Day] in His resurrection." (Romans 6:1-5)
