“People need to know that they have the Gift of Grace if they have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. This gift is given through faith, not of yourselves. The Bible says, “For by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God. This is what allows me to come first boldly to the throne of grace.” – Marilyn M. Carr.
