Two of the Biblical definitions for GRACE is “the attitude of God toward men” and “the liberty that God gives men”.
Liberty is the ‘state of being free‘. God’s grace causes us to be free from the chains that had us bound – alcoholism, addiction to pornography or drugs, jealousy, anger, self-pity, pride, eating disorders, poor self-image. The list is endless.
Graciousness is defined as being ‘courteous, kind, and pleasant’.
In Isaiah 30:18 we are advised that “the Lord longs to be gracious to you”. What an amazing thought: God longs to be kind, generous, and courteous to us.
