The grace of God brings forgiveness for our sins. Man has no right to demand forgiveness from God. God can punish Man for all his sins. But in His grace He chose to provide a way of Salvation through the death of His Son on the cross. Therefore it is by the grace of God we receive pardon for our sins. When we humble ourselves and acknowledge our sins and repent the Lord is merciful to forgive our transgressions and iniquities .The fundamental blessing we receive through the grace of God is the salvation of our soul.
Salvation is a free gift , an unmerited favour bestowed which none of us deserve. No one deserves the Son of God to die for their sins.

When we are in the mountain top we will have the grace to be humble. When we are in the valley the grace of God will help us not to be discouraged.
Whatever be the situation in our life the grace of God will be sufficient for that situation.The grace of God helps us to bear difficulties that do not go away.
