In Shakespeare’s language, the grace is a free Gift endowed with joy & happiness. When we are talking about God’s grace, we are only spelling God’s Gift which is ultimately nothing else than God’s himself. Titus 2:11 ” For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men.” He is the one given himself, and it is his nature. God’s grace means God given himself in our lives.
Perhaps, God’s presence in us and in our sides means the presence of the love ones. We need to make quality time with the one we love in moments of joy and sadness. 1 Corinthians 15:10 ” But the grace of God, I am what I am. His grace which was given to me was no futile, but …”
However, if God’s grace is a free gift ( a testimony of love towards the love ones), all the creation is qualified. Furthermore, it is a gift that need to be nurture certainly (a life of sanctification: a prerequisite of the growth in the knowledge & grace of our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ). Our freedom give us the opportunity to make useful or not the free gift we have received; and put it at work or not in order to achieve something. The biblical best illustration is the ” parable of the talents in the book of Matthew, chapter 5, verses 14-30.”We shouldn’t oppose our freedom to our grace, more we are in his presence, more we are free; more we experience God’s grace, more we are our-self.
