  5. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    Grace of God in a nutshell, is God doing for us what we can never do for ourselves and what we don't deserve for life. I mean, what God's Grace does for us is what we can't do for ourselves and not at all what we can do for ourselves. Now, that's why we do have weaknesses but God is ever perfect and strong. Moreover, we do have shortcomings, but God's Grace does overshadow them. We equally fail or fall sometimes or rather we are sometimes unfaithful. But, God is infallible and ever faithful unlike us. Anyway, I don't know about you. I (personally) really need more and more Grace. Until God's Grace becomes abundant and fully noticeable in my life or rather, until I'm saved wholly by his Grace. In case you don't know, no human has been saved by his or her works and no human will ever be saved eventually by his or her works. Yes! you heard me right, we all are meant to be saved by God's Grace and nothing more or less. ~Emeasoba George
