Grace is the good pleasure of God that inclines Him to bestow benefits on the undeserving. It is God's unmerited favor. It is the first essential in Salvation and is the continuing vital essential in Christian living. The Apostle Paul's letters begin, "Grace be unto you and peace..." Paul closed every one of his epistles with a prayer that the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ would continue to be with all who would read them. Every true Christian life must begin, continue and end in the sustaining grace of the Savior. The closing words in the book of Revelation are, "The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen."
