What is Grace? and Why Do I Need It?
The Allison abridged version for the definition of grace? Grace is the undeserved, yet freely given gift of God's Holy Spirit living within us. It is pure gift from a purely loving God. Sanctifying Grace is what we receive in Baptism that allows us to participate in a life with God. Actual Grace can be thought of as those passing, sometimes momentary, glimpses of the Holy Spirit at work in our lives. A little (or a lot) of divine assistance to guide and support us through life. This gift of God's grace is abundant. We need only dip into the spiritual well-spring to receive it. Why do we need it? Grace is the fuel for our souls to reach Heaven.
Filling Our Grace Well
The most effective way to refill our ‘grace well’ comes through the other gifts God has for us. Primarily, prayer, Sacrament, and Scripture, or what I affectionately refer to as the “Grace Trifecta”. The secret is simple, and not really a secret, immerse yourself daily in conversation with God - ask and you will receive, seek and you will find, knock and I guarantee that door will be flung open!!
