Verses on Grace

Grace_Cover Photo

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his
glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, 
full of grace and truth. John testified concerning him. He cried out, 
saying, “This is the one I spoke about when I said, ‘He who comes 
after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’” Out of his 
fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given. 
For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through 
Jesus Christ. No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who
is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has 
made him known.

John 1:14-18

access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast 
in the hope of the glory of God."

Romans 5:1-2
But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is 
made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly 
about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is 
why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in 
hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then
I am strong.

2 Corinthians 12:7-10 
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has 
blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in 
Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be
holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for 
adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his 
pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has 
freely given us in the One he loves. In him we have redemption 
through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the 
riches of God’s grace."

Ephesians 1:3-7
For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people.
It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to
live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, 
while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our 
great God and Savior, Jesus Christ,

Titus 2:11-13
"For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our 
weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as
we are—yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace
with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help 
us in our time of need."

Hebrews 4:15-16

anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in 
heaven.”

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is 
made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly
about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.

2 Corinthians 12:9
"But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one 
who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind."

James 1:6
"Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let 
them sing songs of praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let them call 
the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil 
in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make 
the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have 
sinned, they will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each 
other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer 
of a righteous person is powerful and effective."
