For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, 12 teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, 13 looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, 14 who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.
8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
2 Cor 12:9-10
9 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
But He gives more grace. Therefore He says:
“God resists the proud,
But gives grace to the humble.
