Grace is defined as unmerited or undeserved favor. In order for grace to be able to make sense by itself, the recipient must have been in dire need of it. The truth is that grace has totally nothing to do with the one who receives it in the sense of that person’s merit. Instead, it’s completely dependent on the one who gives it. God is gracious to us not because of our worthiness, or what we’ve done that somehow grants us a certain level of acceptability in His sight.
