    Cats. Cats are grace personified.

    You get it by working on your athletics and/or dancing, or by being a cat.

    You lose it by eating at McDonald's and sitting on your bum before a screen all day.

    In Christianity, 'grace' is " unmerited favour from God"

    ie: something especially given to you, with love.Something, you haven't earned or are able to secure yourself.

    You lose it when you choose to walk away from God. He still loves you and will never leave you nor forsake you but life is too unpredictable to trust the unknown.

    You gain grace when you accept Jesus Christ as your Saviour, for ' salvation comes through grace...the righteousness of Christ..becoming "Christlike" and being conformed into the image of the Living God.

    Hope this has helped to clarify this for you.......

    God Bless..

    God

    Romans 3:23-24 (New International Version)

    23for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.

    God doesn't force His grace on ANYONE-you have to simply receive it.

    We already have received the grace of God, the grace of God is that he sent Jesus Christ to die for sinful mankind so that all confess and have faith in him and his death burial and resurrection would be saved from the penalty of their sins, this is grace, and we did nothing to deserve it. There is no way to lose it, grace is here in Jesus Christ.

    .

    Grace is our natural state. When we are not in a state of grace, we are out of our natural environment and do not function well.

    Being in a state of grace means being in the prescence of and in remembrance of God.

    Grace comes from God ONLY through His Son Jesus Christ.

    NEVER interpret His WORDS as ALL LYING RELIGIONS do.

    Isaiah 40:8 says His WORD stands FOREVER.

    LIARS can convince you that it's not.

    God bore the stripes we deserved. He was bruised and pierced in our place. God’s grace, unmerited favor, means we did not get what we so richly deserved.

    grace comes from learning how to carry yourself in a polite manner. you should learn it as a child and pratice it as you get older. you lose it by not caring how you are preceived by others. grace is a virture and a lot rides on how you carry yourself. who will want to be your friend, who will want to hire you, how intelligent you look, etc..

    By faith and God's grace alone are we saved. By believing in Him and having faith and accepting His will. We never lose it, once saved always saved.
