Grace is a word thats been getting a lot of use. Most Christians use it, and we don't all use it the same way. Over the years, I have heard a lot of talk about grace, but people, christians, are behaving worse than ever. Its as though bad behavior is no longer bad. It seems that "grace" has made bad not so bad.
I was taught that grace was "unmerited favor". In that case, my bad is still bad. Its horrible. I am ashamed of it. But, when I turn from it, grace takes me up. Jesus died for all my horrible sin, and covered me with grace. Its not grace unless you need it. I need it.
