The word grace in Scripture is used in many different ways. In the Old Testament it is often included with “grace-words” when the writer is speaking of God’s loyalty or forgiveness, His steadfast love or loving-kindness. It is also used in association with relationships, such as the relationship of a superior to an inferior. And this is noteworthy: An inferior cannot show a superior grace. In other words, we cannot show God grace. Everything flows from His grace and there is nothing we have that did not come from Him.
