The third cry of the protestant reformation is sola gratia, which means “by grace alone.” This means that we come to Jesus not by our good works or achievements but by grace alone. The grace of God through Jesus’ death on the cross is what saves someone. Salvation comes purely by the grace of God and not due to someone’s worth or value that would cause them to deserve it.
Grace is unmerited favor from God. We need to live lives in light of the grace of God and look for ways to share sola graitia with those around us.
