“Grace sets the Christian faith apart from every other world religion. What is grace? Simply put, grace is God’s unmerited favour. You cannot earn grace; you cannot do anything to deserve grace. It is simply God doing something for you with no strings attached. God’s grace is solely motivated by love: deep, abiding, unconditional, sacrificial love.” Warren Wiersbe
