God's grace is founded in love, love that is not seasonal or temporary. The very love Jesus displayed at Calvary. In the Apsotle of Romans, Paul's letter wants us to have a firm mental picture of God's grace working in our lives. To do this Paul uses the phrase, "this grace in which we stand". Romans 5:2
For every believer, living in God's grace is all consuming. We can't walk away from it. God thinks, responds and views us through the eyes of grace. We live in a sphere of grace, surrounded by His goodness. Through grace we walk in God's favor and through this gift of grace we have access to God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
