Ephesians 2: 8

For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God.

Grace, the mere sound of the word is comforting. A very commonly accepted shorthand definition for grace is: unmerited favor. We have been saved by the gift of God through nothing we have done. Our only part is faith in the blood of Jesus. It was grace, the unmerited, unearned gift of God which saved our souls from hell. That is what God’s grace towards us does.

Grace, however, isn’t limited to this one application nor is dispensed solely by God. “Dispenser of grace, pour out your grace upon me, for myself but also for others.” That’s how it works. God gives us His grace so that we can spread it to others, especially those who don’t know Him. We can get grace to them when He can’t because we are the ones they come in contact with. There is a caveat, though. Grace is unmerited favor. In other words, we are tasked to give it to people who don’t deserve it. They are not worthy, have not earned it. None the less, God has apportioned grace for them.

Salvation is a gift from God, granted by God’s grace. Our gift to God is when we spread His grace, unmerited favor, to others. Be grace-full today. Find a way to show God’s favor to someone else.
