Well, first you may need to know what the word Grace means . So, here is the definition of Grace –
Grace is ALL that God is free to do for YOU based on the work of Jesus Christ on your behalf. It is the inexhaustible supply of Gods goodness whereby. He does for you what you could never do for yourself
Did you know that you were dead (spiritually) before you had Grace by Jesus Christ? We are sinners and we only have Grace because God gave it to us once we became believers in his son. There is nothing you can do to get Grace. It is a Gift from God. Thank God for that!!
In the Old Testament They could not get it correct by following the law so, as you may know God had to send his SON to save us. I know there are many great biblical people that loved the lord. They were faithful to God. However, god needed to send his Son so we could be forgiven. Are sins were too large. We were just not making it with the law. So as you know, God picked Mary to bare a Son to live a perfect life. To show the world how it is done. God and Jesus are not mad at us at all for not following the law. In fact, God loves you and me so much he did not want us to miss out on what he has for us. Therefore, He gave up his only SON (Jesus Christ) for us. He wants us to live forever with him in his kingdom. There is not one sin that is not forgiven by him. There is not one tear you can shed that he does not care about. He hurts with you. He wants the very best for his children. There is only one thing that you have to do for him but he really did it for us. Is believe that his son died on the cross for you. Then if you do or have done this.
You get the GIFT OF GRACE and ETERNAL life with him
So what does that take for you to do? TRUST, BELIEVE, HAVE FAITH, Joy IN HIM, SEAK HIM,
If you just get to know him you will not go wrong. He will change your life for sure. You will have the best life ever.

Romans 8:1-39 there is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. …

1 Peter 2:1-25 so put away all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander.

Hebrews 12:1-2 Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfected of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
