    Do you need God's Grace every day?

    God gives the His children everything they need to live a good life and to fulfill God's will.

    2 Corinthians 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

    2 Corinthians 12:10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

    Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

    I don't need God's grace just every day....I need His grace every second!

    The next beat of my heart, the next breath I take is solely because of His grace.

    Grace.....Amazing, isn't it?

    Oh great...where's the Websters??? LOL Sorry...couldn't help myself.

    I do not need God's Grace every day...I need it ever SECOND of every MINUTE of every HOUR of every day. It's a constant thing and it's precious and much wanted and needed. Without it I'd be lost.

    I'm sure there was a point to your question but I'm not seeing what it is.

    Loaded question. God's "common grace" sustains the universe. "The rain falls on the just and the unjust."

    Like the song, 'without Him I can do nothing, without Him I'd surely fail, without Him I could do nothing, like a ship without a sail'.

    Let's keep this narrowed down to Christians only for the sake of the debate as to whether a Christian needs God's grace everyday or not.

    The scripture states that "by grace are ye saved". Is this a one time event or does one need this saving grace each day? And why or why not?

    Yes, for with out His grace extended towards me as in allowing me to still be alive, would now be physically dead!

    Depends on how you are feeling at the moment. How about those who are terribly ill? They might say it would be grace to them for God to take their physical life.
