Webster’s 1828 Dictionary defines grace in many ways. My favorite of the definitions is this:

“Appropriately the free unmerited love and favor of God, the spring and source of all the benefits men receive from him.”

In the past, I’ve encouraged you as a fellow momma to receive grace and talked about how grace is a part of my blog. The Lord willing, this year is going to be a year of grace in my life {read where I explain why} and I pray it will be in yours too.


I wanted to share with you twelve verses I found that drive home this truth: each person’s need for grace and the ability of God to give it to us, purely out of His love. What a benefit grace is in our lives and how desperately we need to drink it in day after day.  John 15:5 says “apart from Me you can do nothing!”

The grace bestowed upon us by God in salvation gives us the ability to live “self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age” (Titus 2:12). This is the only way we are able to bear fruit. We cannot do it on our own. Every day we are in deep need of grace, not just at the moment of our salvation.

So, onto the verses!

“Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we exult in hope of the glory of God.” Romans 5:1-2

“And He has said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.’ Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9

“But He gives a greater grace. Therefore it says, ‘God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble.'” James 4:6

“For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.” John 1:16, ESV

“For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age.” Titus 2:11-12

“But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved).” Ephesians 2:4-5

“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.” 2 Corinthians 13:14

“Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.” 2 Peter 1:2

“For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law but under grace.” Romans 6:14

“Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16

“Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us eternal comfort and good hope by grace, comfort and strengthen your hearts in every good work and word.” 2 Thess. 2:16-17

“Therefore the Lord longs to be gracious to you, and therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; how blessed are all those who long for Him.” Isaiah 30:18

Here is a bonus verse for you! This verse doesn’t use the actual word “grace” but it uses the Old Testament Hebrew term that is essentially the ultimate term for grace, the word “lovingkindness”.

“I shall make mention of the lovingkindnesses of the Lord, the praises of the Lord, according to all that the Lord granted us.” Isaiah 63:7a

  1. I am so glad I discovered your little part of the world and I just love all your free memory verse cards. Would you consider offering a KJV option? We memorize everything in King James. I have a child who memorizes whatever she sees and wouldn’t want to confuse her scripture memory verses. Thanks for all your hard work and considerations. God Bless

    • Hi Nikki,

      I must apologize, I thought I replied to this comment but now I see I didn’t yet! My printables do take quite some time to make, so I can’t promise that I will have a KJV version in the next few days, but it is something that I’ve thought a lot about, as many people do enjoy this version and use it in their home. I will keep this in mind and hopefully I can get it done :)

      If you’re interested, I wrote a Scripture Memory eBook with A to Z Scripture verses as well as some other verses to memorize on sin and salvation. There is a KJV version!
