The Word of His Grace
In the book of Acts, the message of the gospel is called “the word of his grace” and “the gospel of the grace of God.”
So they remained for a long time, speaking boldly for the Lord, who bore witness to the word of his grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands. (ESV)

Abounding in Grace
God’s grace is abundant. There is no end to the goodness, mercy, Love, healing, forgiveness, and countless other ways God pours out blessings on His people. Through the endless reserves of God’s grace, he enriches our lives and unites us together in his family, the body of Christ.
