Wow, I have just completed Joseph Prince's book, Unmerited Favor. What an awesome book and one I highly recommend, especially if you are not quiet sure what it truly means to be saved by grace.
Over the years, the word of God has been misinterpreted in so many ways, that I am of the opinion, many in the church today remain bound up by the religious teachings of man. And yet, God came to set His people free through the Blood of the Lamb that was shed on Calvary. Today, we are able to access His grace and walk in His righteousness without any effort whatsoever. All you and I have to do is believe.
God wants us to succeed in every area of our lives and with His presence in our lives, we can. His grace or unmerited favor can swing open doors of opportunities and place you at the right place at the right time for His blessings. Even if we lack the necessary qualifications, His unmerited favor can propel us forward.
"May grace (God's favor) and peace (which is perfect well-being, all necessary good, all spiritual prosperity, and freedom from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts) be multiplied to you in (the fill, personal precise, and correct) knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord - 2 Pet 1:2 AMP
