Definition

Saving grace is the free and unmerited operation of God’s person and presence that initiates the spiritual life of God’s people.

Summary

God’s saving grace is the unmerited favor of God that reconciles sinners through Jesus Christ. This is not the same as mercy; grace is God’s goodness toward sinners, while mercy is God’s goodness toward sufferers. This grace is sovereign; God gives new spiritual life to whomever he will. This grace is unconditional; God’s saving grace cannot be earned. God’s saving grace is the foundation for God’s gracious gifts and empowerment of the Christian life, nourishing and sustaining us. Finally, this grace is fundamentally the presence of God in covenant with his people.
