Unmerited favor of God
flows continually
and without interruption,
when you are a child of His.
His Love for us is...
Unquestionably unconditional;
however, His Grace is not.
Grace and Love are not equivalent -
We must not endeavor
to confuse these concepts.
God's Word is always steadfast
and is an unmovable truth.

Author Notes:

The standard definition of grace is "unmerited favor".

Although God loves us, we must employ His Principles for living to have His unbounded favor flow over our lives. His love for us is unconditional while grace is not. He proved His Love by letting Christ die for our sins - his grace proves that He honors His Word.

I've really never thought of love and grace being or not being equal.  Grace is a gift or outpouring of love as I understand it.

Thanks for sharing your work here.

God bless,
Rae

By definition, Grace is: Unmerited favor from God.
