    When learning about Grace, the grace of God, we are to understand that Grace is not a obtuse definition.
    Its not just a sweet and beautiful idea.
    Grace... is actually The Savior.
    God's Grace, is THE Savior, Himself.

    Jesus The Christ = IS The Grace of God.

    Notice this verse.....

    Titus 2:11. """""the Grace of God the brings salvation has Appeared""""

    Now notice "has appeared".
    The grace of God has "APPEARED."

    And How did God's Grace appear?
    John 3:16 and 1 Timothy 3:16

    God's Grace appeared as a virgin born baby, and died as the sin bearer of/for the World.
    Grace appeared as : "God manifested in the Flesh".
    This is God's Grace.
    God's Grace is Jesus The Lord, who has "Appeared".

    When you first believed in Jesus, and you KNEW He was real, and you KNEW, He IS THE Savior, then that is Him appearing to you as TRUTH.
    Jesus said...>"I am THE Truth".

    Some Pastor's use this phase... "Grace is the unmerited favor of God".
    Ever heard that one from a pulpit?
    And that is true, because Grace is God's Gift.....>"for God so love the world that HE GAVE">.

    Gave what?
    Gave Grace to this world, that ""APPEARED."""
    And who is this GRACE that appeared?
    That is Christ The Lord. The Savior. God in THE Flesh.
    = Jesus, is He who "appeared".
    Jesus IS the GRACE of God.

    Are you born again????? Not just water baptized, but BORN AGAIN ?
    Then God's Grace lives in you, as "Christ IN YOU< THE HOPE....of Glory".
    That is how you received God's Grace.
    You received it when Jesus who Himself is the Grace of God, came to live in you, and you were made Spiritually alive 'IN Christ".
    See that? That is your SALVATION.

    You've heard of the term "Glory".
    "Glory" is Heaven.. And Jesus's is the Hope of Heaven, sent here, as the "bread come down from Heaven""" Who IS the Grace of God = who "Appeared".

    Are you born again? ?
    Then you have been redeemed by THE GRACE Himself who bore all your sin, became all you sin, and was judged for all your sin on THE CROSS and by HIS Death.
    This Grace, Jesus THE Christ... rose from the Dead and is now waiting for you if you are born again.

    The NT says that when Jesus comes to get His "bride", the born again will meet Him in the air., in the Sky, in the Clouds. This means you'll fly.
    And how?
    Do you recall that when Jesus ascended back to Glory, the NT said He flew...
    He left the ground He created and entered the Sky He created. Colossians 1:16
    Well, "CHRIST IN YOU"......is the Same Jesus, and on the day He comes back for His "body of Christ" the same Jesus who is in you, will take you off this earth, literally.
    Believe it.

    This is soon to happen. And only if you are born again, will you go to Him and feast your eyes on GOD's GRACE, who IS THE Living Christ.
    Jesus IS The Grace of God, who: "Appeared", and He is about to appear again.

    Now, how is God's Grace, >(who is Jesus)<, also the mercy of God?
    Well, it's God mercy to give you God's Son as your "made righteous" " IN Christ", who Himself is the Grace that "Appeared", as a GIFT to this world. John 3:16
    God's Grace, who Appeared, ... This same Jesus, is given to you and given for you, as a GIFT:> on The Cross..
    So, the MERCY is.......that God gives you this Gift, who is Jesus on The Cross, and you do nothing but receive the Gift by faith to join God's Spirit as "born again".
    The MERCY is that you are not required to earn this Gift, and you are not required to be worthy to accept this Gift.
    The MERCY is that this Gift of God, the Grace of God, who IS Jesus,... fulfilled all God's requirements on Your Behalf, so that you reap all the eternal benefits, for FREE.

    These :

    "The GIFT of Salvation"
    "The GIFT of Righteousness"
    "The GIFT of Eternal Life".
    "Being MADE Righteous"
    Becoming "One with God".
    Becoming a Joint Heir with Jesus
    Becoming an Heir of God
    Becoming a Child/Son of God
    Becoming a New Creation
    Being made always at peace with God.

    To grow in grace is to first be heart established in Grace. Hebrews 13:9

    From there the growth is this..>"work our your salvation".

    To do that, you have to learn how to walk in the Spirit.
