What Does it Mean- God’s Grace

In the Christian’s world, what does it mean when people say things like God’s grace was upon me. Grace is God s ability given to us and placed upon us. You are saved by it, which means that there is nothing you can do to earn your salvation; it is a gift from God.  It is what God has finished for you. I have also seen that the disciples prayed that God’s grace would be added to one another often. The bible says at hand there is a gift of grace, just like there is a gift of faith, leadership, encouragement and others. As we depend on God completely for His ability( grace) to operate through us, then we look to his power working through us, and we no longer  have to consider simply our own ability but that God is working through us.  That is where the power to overcome difficulties and furthermore to minister to others is descovered. I can accomplish all things through Christ who strengthens me.

1Cor. 15:10
But by the grace of God I am what I am: And his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all: Yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.

Once we get God’s grace upon us and working through us, we will be used to to touch many peoples lives. When we experience the reality of his grace working through us, we will never again wonder what it means to have it upon us.
