“Grace, grace, God’s grace, Grace that will pardon and cleanse within; Grace, grace, God’s grace, Grace that is greater than all our sin!” These are some lyrics to one of my favorite hymns of faith by Julia H. Johnson originally published in 1910. But God’s grace has been available for many, many more years. Take a look at these amazing KJV Bible verses about grace.
1 Corinthians 15:10 “But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.”
