Government is saying to the average citizen every January 1: 'For the next five months you’ll be working for us, for goals we shall determine. Is that clear? After May 5 you may look after your own needs and ambitions, but report back to us next January. Now move along.' ...

Call me a radical, but I think that comes dangerously close to being a form of indentured servitude.

– Johathan EdwardsRate it:
Grace is not against good works It simply does not bless on the basis of good works. We receive blessing from God based solely on the merits of His Son--blessings freely given to us in Christ and nowhere else. The completeness that is in Christ mean deliverance from trying to 'be good' and 'do right' in order to be accepted by God.
– Richard JordanRate it:
Grace is simply, a free and unmerited favour from God. Permit me to tell you that, grace is synonymous with destiny. In the sense that, it's also a God-given gift and which is meant to be realized and utilized within a given period of time just like destiny otherwise, it will surely elapse/decline/subside or even lost outrightly. Oh! Yes, God's grace is just for a while and never forever. So, you've got to acknowledge/appreciate/utilize/maximize it (God's grace) to the fullest. Unless you want it to be withdrawn/taken away from you sooner than you even expect it. And mind you, if/when God's grace is taken away/withdrawn from you. Believe me or don't, you're as good as done for, until it's restored back to you. Because, living without God's grace is like trying to live/survive without God himself. And I guess, you know what that entails don't you?
– Emeasoba GeorgeRate it:
Grace is when your kindness and your character are radiant through your action
– Athena AthenaRate it:
Grace of God in a nutshell, is God doing for us what we can never do for ourselves and what we don't deserve for life. I mean, what God's Grace does for us is what we can't do for ourselves and not at all what we can do for ourselves. Now, that's why we do have weaknesses but God is ever perfect and strong. Moreover, we do have shortcomings, but God's Grace does overshadow them. We equally fail or fall sometimes or rather we are sometimes unfaithful. But, God is infallible and ever faithful unlike us. Anyway, I don't know about you. I (personally) really need more and more Grace. Until God's Grace becomes abundant and fully noticeable in my life or rather, until I'm saved wholly by his Grace. In case you don't know, no human has been saved by his or her works and no human will ever be saved eventually by his or her works. Yes! you heard me right, we all are meant to be saved by God's Grace and nothing more or less. ~Emeasoba George
