20 Inspirational Bible Verses About Grace

by Pamela Rose Williams on July 22, 2011 · Print Print · Email Email

Grace means to get something that you do not deserve; unmerited favor.  Mercy means you do not get a punishment that you deserve; compassion, forbearance. God is abundant in grace and mercy and we can read about it in the Bible. His greatest act of grace is the gift of salvation that is available for all people through faith (Eph 2:8-9).  When the gift is accepted, eternal life is promised to the recipient. This eternal life is a promise of a home one day in heaven with God. The promise to the believer is sealed with the Holy Spirit as a guarantee that one day Jesus the Christ will return to earth to claim His purchased possession (Eph 1:12-14; 4:30). Jesus purchased every sinner with His own blood on the cross at Calvary.

Finding Grace

Esther 2:16-17 And when Esther was taken to King Ahasuerus, into his royal palace, in the tenth month, which is the month of Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign, the king loved Esther more than all the women, and she won grace and favor in his sight more than all the virgins, so that he set the royal crown on her head and made her queen instead of Vashti.

Jeremiah 31:2-3 Thus says the LORD:”The people who survived the sword found grace in the wilderness; when Israel sought for rest, the LORD appeared to him from far away. I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.

Acts 15:39-40 And there arose a sharp disagreement, so that they separated from each other. Barnabas took Mark with him and sailed away to Cyprus, but Paul chose Silas and departed, having been commended by the brothers to the grace of the Lord.

2 Corinthians 12:8-9 Three times I pleaded with the Lord about this, that it should leave me. 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 of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Bible Verses About Grace
Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace

Hebrews 4:16 Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

Powerful Grace

John 1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Acts 4:33 And with great power the apostles were giving their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all.

Acts 6:8 And Stephen, full of grace and power, was doing great wonders and signs among the people.

Acts 11:22-24 The report of this came to the ears of the church in Jerusalem, and they sent Barnabas to Antioch. When he came and saw the grace of God, he was glad, and he exhorted them all to remain faithful to the Lord with steadfast purpose, for he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith. And a great many people were added to the Lord.

Acts 14:1-3 Now at Iconium they entered together into the Jewish synagogue and spoke in such a way that a great number of both Jews and Greeks believed. But the unbelieving Jews stirred up the Gentiles and poisoned their minds against the brothers. So they remained for a long time, speaking boldly for the Lord, who bore witness to the word of his grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands.

Receiving Grace

John 1:15-17 (John bore witness about him, and cried out, “This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me ranks before me, because he was before me.'”) And from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.

Acts 20:32 And now I commend you to God and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up and to give you the inheritance among all those who are sanctified.

Romans 1:1-5 Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God, which he promised beforehand through his prophets in the holy Scriptures, concerning his Son, who was descended from David according to the flesh and was declared to be the Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness by his resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord, through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith for the sake of his name among all the nations,

Hebrews 12:15 See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no “root of bitterness” springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled

1 Peter 5:10 And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.

Grace: A Gift Eternal

Romans 3:20-24 For by works of the law no human being will be justified in his sight, since through the law comes knowledge of sin. But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it — the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus

Romans 4:15-17 For the law brings wrath, but where there is no law there is no transgression. That is why it depends on faith, in order that the promise may rest on grace and be guaranteed to all his offspring—not only to the adherent of the law but also to the one who shares the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all, as it is written, “I have made you the father of many nations”— in the presence of the God in whom he believed, who gives life to the dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist.

Romans 5:1-2 Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

Romans 5:12-21 Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned— for sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not counted where there is no law. Yet death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those whose sinning was not like the transgression of Adam, who was a type of the one who was to come. But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if many died through one man’s trespass, much more have the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for many. And the free gift is not like the result of that one man’s sin. For the judgment following one trespass brought condemnation, but the free gift following many trespasses brought justification. For if, because of one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ. Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men. For as by the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous. Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, so that, as sin reigned in death, grace also might reign through righteousness leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Ephesians 2:4-9 But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ— by grace you have been saved—and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

Christian Quotes About Grace

“Do you find life too difficult for you? So did we, but not now, with the amplitudes of grace there are for us in Jesus Christ, it grows satisfying and successful and exciting beyond measure, becomes another and a richer thing.”  ~ A. J. Gossip

“Just as the sinner’s despair of any hope from himself is the first prerequisite of a sound conversion, so the loss of all confidence in himself is the first essential in the believer’s growth in grace.” ~ A. W. Pink

“The cross is the lightning rod of grace that short-circuits God’s wrath to Christ so that only the light of His love remains for believers.” ~ A. W. Tozer

“Grace, then, is grace,–that is to say, it is sovereign, it is free, it is sure, it is unconditional, and it is everlasting.” ~ Alexander Whyte

“Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us.” ~ Abraham Lincoln

I looked through many websites and found lots of ideas about grace but this one has been the most inspirational. I will suggest this to my 3rd grade Bible class. I strive to help them learn the different characterists about our God and Savior. This weeks homework was to find as many verses about God’s grace and choose 5 that were to most meaningful to them. Thank you.

Amplified Bible (AMP)
16 I do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers.
17 [For I always pray to] the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, that He may grant you a spirit of wisdom and revelation [of insight into mysteries and secrets] in the [deep and intimate] knowledge of Him,
18 By having the eyes of your heart flooded with light, so that you can know and understand the hope to which He has called you, and how rich is His glorious inheritance in the saints (His set-apart ones),
19 And [so that you can know and understand] what is the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His power in and for us who believe, as demonstrated in the working of His mighty strength,
20 Which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His [own] right hand in the heavenly [places],
21 Far above all rule and authority and power and dominion and every name that is named [above every title that can be conferred], not only in this age and in this world, but also in the age and the world which are to come.

Hello Pamela,
My wife and I are living in Thailand doing dicscipleship and church planting among Buddhist people. Recently we have the chance to teach a group of young people who are Thai, some believers some not yet believers. They are in a program called CHANGE ran by a good Thai friend. It is mostly for women trying to find a new life and get out of bad situations dealing with prostitution or other kinds of problems. They live at a safe house and are learning a new job. Part of it is a kind of formal disciplship program. Both my wife and I speak Thai well so, she asked us to teach. My wife is teaching on the characteristics of God, I will be teaching on the Fathers heart of God. I was doing some research on preparing for this and I came across this sight. Thanks for sharing your verses on grace. Found them helpful in talking about how our Father in heaven is gracious torward us and not a legalistic father who lords the law over us and will condem us. It is important to these women to see this grace in God the Father. So thank you for sharing. Take care, Kennedy

If Grace is “the unmerited favor of God,” How can it be said that “Grace came through Jesus Christ”? Didn’t Christ merit every bit of Gods Favor? Didn’t Christ need Grace?
Isn’t there a distinction between new covenant Grace and old covenant Grace? It would benefit this study if Romans 6:14 were included. ” For sin shall not have dominion over you for you are not under law but under Grace.” If we simply define grace as the unmerited favor of God, there is no distinction between the new covenant age of Grace and the old covenant age of Mercy. Surely Moses received the unmerited favor of God. If Grace is getting something you do not deserve, the whole world is under “Grace.” We could say “common Grace.” However this saying is not found anywhere in the scriptures.
If Jesus didn’t need grace,

Hi Christopher, Thank you for your questions and comments. I have never heard anyone ask the question if Christ needed grace. Why would He … He is God. The Bible teaches that grace comes by faith (Eph 2:8-9) … faith in what Jesus did at the cross. We are now in the age of grace … some would call it the Church age or even the dispensation of grace. Grace was not extended to anyone before Christ. Moses and other Old Testament people had righteousness accounted to them by faith (Hebrews 11). Today, after Christ, the whole world has the opportunity to receive God’s grace by faith. You can call it common grace if you like because indeed God extends it to everyone in common … it is offered to whosoever, the world, all, any and every one (John 6:51; John 10:9; Acts 10:36; Rom 3:22; 1 Cor 15:22; Matt 10:32; Matt 10:33; Matt 16:25; John 3:15; John 3:16; John 11:26; John 6:40 KJV). I agree you will not find “common grace” in the Scriptures. I stand by my definition that grace is getting something that you do not deserve because none of our righteousness is good enough to earn a place with our most holy God in his holy home of heaven. We don’t deserve what Jesus did for us but I am sure glad He did because I am a sinner saved by grace.

Christopher January 24, 2013 at 9:30 am

Thank you for taking the time to reply. I agree whole heartedly that everything in the Christian life is un merited and a gift from God. My concern then is that the word Grace becomes so broad in it’s definition that it is of little practical value. I believe Jesus needed grace because he was made like his brothers in all ways, and yet never sinned. He us called our forerunner, running the race befor us. Our example. When Gods word says he denied him self and did the will of the father he did that as a man and not God. How could he be our “forerunner” if we could not follow after him. The humanity of Christ is a great mystery and I do not pretend to understand it fully. However there lies the mystery of holyness and the true Grace of God which was seen in Christ. Why did Christ need Grace? We could ask the same question about his baptism. To identify himself with sinners. And open the new and living way for us to follow him. Thank you for posting my comments, Grace be with you.

I’m a married father of 8 children. I am the only one who is Christian. I used to belong to a cult and my wife and children still belong to it. Their cult teaches that God’s grace is not sufficient, that our personal works are required in addition to God’s grace. This used to drive me insane, because I never knew how many works were enough to obtain God’s forgiveness and it was one of the reasons I left the cult.
Tonight I’m going to teach my family from the Bible and I’m going to use your introduction and the scriptures you cite from the Bible in my lesson. I’m not going to tell them they’re wrong. I’m simply going to let them know what the Bible says and I’m hoping they will figure it out on their own.
