What Does the Bible Say About . . . .
GRACE & FAITH
"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith --and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God--" Ephesians 2:8. This well known verse shows the inseparable linkage between grace and faith.
The American Heritage Dictionary defines grace as: a) divine love and protection bestowed freely upon mankind, b) the state of being protected or sanctified by the favor of God, c) an excellence or power granted by God; an unmerited gift from God. Faith is defined as: a) a confident belief in the truth, value or trustworthiness of a person, idea or thing, b) belief that does not rest on logical proof or material evidence, c) belief and trust in God and in the doctrines expressed in Scripture or other sacred works.
