GRACE
1.charis    NT:5485 has various uses,
(a) objective, that which bestows or occasions pleasure, delight, or causes favorable         regard; it is applied, e. g., to beauty, or gracefulness of person, Luke 2:40; act, 2       Cor 8:6, or speech, Luke 4:22, RV, "words of grace" (KJV, "gracious words"); Col 4:6;            
(b) subjective,
     1)  on the part of the bestower, the friendly disposition from which the kindly act          proceeds, graciousness, loving-kindness, goodwill generally, e. g., Acts 7:10;                 especially with reference to the divine favor or "grace," e. g., Acts 14:26; in this          respect there is stress on its freeness and universality, its spontaneous character,         as in the case of God's redemptive mercy, and the pleasure or joy He designs for           the recipient; thus it is set in contrast with debt, Rom 4:4,16, with works,                 Romans11:6, 
{Rom 11:5-8 NKJV   Even so then, at this present time there is a remnant according to the election of grace. 6  And if  by grace, then it is no longer of works; otherwise grace is no longer grace. But if it is of works, it is no longer grace; otherwise work is no longer work. 7  What then? Israel has not obtained what it seeks; but the elect have obtained it, and the rest were blinded. 8   Just as it is written: "God has given them a spirit of stupor, eyes that they should not see and ears that they should not hear, to this very day."  }  
     and with law, John 1:17; For the law was given to Moses, but grace and truth came
     through Jesus Christ 
     Rom 6:14-15 NKJ  For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under          law but under grace Gal 5:4 NKJ   You have become estranged from Christ, you             who attempt to be justified by law; you have fallen from Grace.
          
     2) on the part of the receiver, a sense of the favor bestowed, a feeling of                  gratitude, e. g., Rom 6:17 ("thanks"); in this respect it sometimes signifies "to be          thankful,"thus   graciousness e. g., Luke 17:9 ("doth he thank the servant?" lit.,           "hath he thanks to");  1 Tim 1:12 - And I thank Jesus Christ Who has enabled me,       because He counted  me faithful, putting me into the ministry          
c) in another objective sense, the effect of "grace," the spiritual state of those            who  have experienced its exercise, whether
          (1)a state of "grace,"   e. g., Rom 5:2; 1 Peter 5:12; 2 Peter 3:18, or
          (2)a proof thereof in practical effects, deeds of "grace,"  e. g., 1 Cor
          16:3, RV, "bounty" (KJV, "liberality"); 2 Cor 8:6,19 ( in 2 Cor 9:8 it means the
          sum of earthly blessings); the power and equipment for ministry, e. g.;  Romans
          1:5-6 NKJV   Through Him we have received grace and apostleship for
          obedience to the faith  among all nations for His name. ( Not for our own name )
          Romans 12:6  Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to             us,  let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith;

So in this case GRACE has a meaning of empowering one for service like we see in going from  grace to grace.  His grace is also His power in this sense.- so when we need grace to help in time of need.this has meaning to receive from God the power we need to overcome temptation.and to be and do,  all He wants us to be and do.  

           Romans  15:15-16a NKJ   Nevertheless brethren, I have written more boldly to you on some points, as reminding you, because of the grace given to me by God,...16)  that I might be a minister of Jesus  Christ to the gentiles, ministering the gospel of God,...
   1 Cor 3:10-15 NKJV
          10   According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the   foundation,and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. 11  For no other  foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12  Now if anyone builds on  this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, 13  each one's work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one's work, of what sort it is.14  If anyone's work which he has built on it endures,  he will receive a reward.
          Gal 2:8-10 NKJV     9  and when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived  the grace that had been given to me, they gave me and Barnabas the right hand of fellowship,  that we should go to the Gentiles and they to the circumcised. 10  They desired only that we should remember the poor, the very thing which I also was eager to do.
          Eph 3:2 NKJ  If indeed you have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which was given to me for you.
          Eph 3:7 NKJV  of which I became a minister according to the gift of the grace of God given to me by the effective working of His power.
          To be in favor with is, to find "grace" with,  e. g., Acts 2:47; praising God and having favor with all  the people.  And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved. It appears in this sense at the beginning and the end of several epistles, where the writer desires "grace" from God for the readers, e. g., Rom 1:7; 1 Cor 1:3; in this respect it is connected with the imperative mood of the word chairo, "to rejoice," a mode of greeting among Greeks, e. g., Acts 15: 23; James 1:1 ; 2 John 10,11, RV, "greeting" (KJV, "God speed").

The fact that "grace" is received both from God the Father, 2 Cor 1:12, and from Christ, Gal 1:6; Rom 5:15   (where both are mentioned),   is a testimony to the deity of Christ.
         2 Thess 1:12, the phrase "according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ" is to be taken with each of the preceding clauses, "in you," "and ye in Him."
In James 4:6, "But He giveth more grace" (Greek, "a greater grace," RV, marg.), the statement is to be taken in connection with the preceding verse, which contains two remonstrating, rhetorical questions,
       "Think ye that the Scripture speaketh in vain?" and "Doth the Spirit (the Holy Spirit) which He made to dwell in us long unto envying?" (see the RV). The implied answer to each is "it cannot be so." Accordingly, if those who are acting so flagrantly, as if it were so, will listen to the Scripture instead of letting it speak in  vain, and will act so that the Holy Spirit may have His way within, God will give even "a greater grace,"  namely, all that follows from humbleness and from turning away from the world.

Note: The corresponding verb charitoo -  "to endue with divine favor or grace," is used in Luke 1:28, "highly favored" ( "endued with grace" ) and Eph 1:6, KJV, "hath made... accepted"; RV, "freely bestowed" ( "endued.").

euprepeia - euprepeia - NT:2143, "comeliness, goodly appearance," is said of the outward appearance of the flower of the grass, James 1:11. (graciousness again)

" 16  And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. 17  For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18  No one has seen God at any time.

And great grace was upon them all. 34  Nor was there anyone among them who lacked; for all who were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the proceeds of the things that were sold, 35  and laid them at the apostles' feet; and they distributed to each as anyone had need.                                                 (5485)

Rom 1:5-6 NKJV
Through Him we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for His name, 6  among whom you also are the called of Jesus Christ;

Rom 3:23-25 NKJV
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24  being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 25  whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed,

Rom 5:2 NKJV
through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

Rom 4:13-17 NKJV
For the promise that he would be the heir of the world was not to Abraham or to his seed through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. 14  For if those who are of the law are heirs, faith is made void and the promise made of no effect, 15  because the law brings about wrath; for where there is no law there is no transgression. 16  Therefore it is of faith that it might be according to grace, so that the promise might be sure to all the seed, not only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all 17  (as it is written, "I have made you a father of many nations") in the presence of Him whom he believed--God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did;

Rom 5:15 NKJV
But the free gift is not like the offense. For if by the one man's offense many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to many.

Rom 5:17 NKJV
For if by the one man's offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.)

Rom 5:20-21 NKJV
Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more, so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Rom 6:1-2 NKJV
What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it?

Rom 6:10-16 NKJV
10  For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. 11  Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord. 12  Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. 13  And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. 14  For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.
15  What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not! 16  Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one's slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness?

Rom 12:3-8 NKJV
3  For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith. 4  For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, 5  so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. 6  Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith; 7  or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching; 8  he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.

Rom 16:20 NKJV
And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

1 Cor 1:2-3 NKJV    Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Cor 1:4-9 NKJV
4  I  thank my God always concerning you for the grace of God which was given to you by Christ Jesus, 5  that you were enriched in everything by Him in all utterance and all knowledge, 6  even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you, 7  so that you come short in no gift, eagerly waiting for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ, 8  who will also confirm you to the end, that you may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9  God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

1 Cor 3:10-15 NKJV
10   According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. 11  For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12   Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, 13  each one's work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one's work, of what sort it is. 14  If anyone's work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward.

1 Cor 3:16-17 NKJV
16   Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 17  If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.

1 Cor 15:9-10 NKJV
For I am the least of the apostles, who am not worthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.

2 Cor 1:2       Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Cor 1:12 NKJV
For our boasting is this: the testimony of our conscience that we conducted ourselves in the world in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom but by the grace of God, and more abundantly toward you.

2 Cor 4:15-16 NKJV   For all things are for your sakes, that grace, having spread through the many, may cause thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God. Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.

2 Cor 8:1-2 NKJV
Moreover, brethren, we make known to you the grace of God bestowed on the churches of Macedonia: that in a great trial of affliction the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded in the riches of their liberality.

2 Cor 8:6-7,9  NKJV   So we urged Titus, that as he had begun, so he would also complete this grace in you as well. 7  But as you abound in everything--in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in all diligence, and in your love for us--see that you abound in this grace also. 9  For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich

2 Cor 9:8-9 NKJV  And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. As it is written: "He has dispersed abroad, He has given to the poor; His righteousness endures forever

2 Cor 9:14-15 NKJV  and by their prayer for you, who long for you because of the exceeding grace of God in you. Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!

2 Cor 12:7-10 NKJV
7  And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure. 8  Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. 9  And He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness." Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10  Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ's sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

2 Cor 13:14 NKJV   The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen.

Gal 1:6-8 NKJV   I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, 7  which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. 8  But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.

Gal 1:15-16 NKJV   But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb and called me through His grace,  to reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately confer with flesh and blood,

Gal 2:8-10 NKJV
9  and when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that had been given to me, they gave me and Barnabas the right hand of fellowship, that we should go to the Gentiles and they to NKJV the circumcised. 10  They desired only that we should remember the poor, the very thing which I also was eager to do.

Gal 2:20-21NKJV
20  I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. 21  I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain."

Gal 5:4-6 NKJV
4  You have become estranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace. 5  For we through the Spirit eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. 6  For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but faith working through love.

Eph 2:5-10 NKJV
5  even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), 6  and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7  that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 8  For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9  not of works, lest anyone should boast.

Eph 4:7-8  NKJV    But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ's gift.  Therefore He says: "When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive ,And gave gifts to men."

Heb 10:29 NKJV
Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace?

Heb 12:12-17 NKJV
Therefore strengthen the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees, 13  and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be dislocated, but rather be healed. 14  Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord: 15  looking diligently lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled; 16  lest there be any fornicator or profane person like Esau, who for one morsel of food sold his birthright. 17  For you know that afterward, when he wanted to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place for repentance, though he sought it diligently with tears.

Jude 3-4 NKJV
Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. 4  For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.

Jude 5-23 NKJV
5  But I want to remind you, though you once knew this, that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe. 6  And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day; 7  as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. 8   Likewise also these dreamers defile the flesh, reject authority, and speak evil of dignitaries. 9  Yet Michael the archangel, in contending with the devil, when he disputed about the body of Moses, dared not bring against him a reviling accusation, but said, "The Lord rebuke you!" 10   But these speak evil of whatever they do not know; and whatever they know naturally, like brute beasts, in these things they corrupt themselves. 11  Woe to them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, have run greedily in the error of Balaam for profit, and perished in the rebellion of Korah.

12  These are spots in your love feasts, while they feast with you without fear, serving only themselves. They are clouds without water, carried about by the winds; late autumn trees without fruit, twice dead, pulled up by the roots; 13  raging waves of the sea, foaming up their own shame; wandering stars for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever. 14  Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying, "Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints, 15  to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him."
16  These are grumblers, complainers, walking according to their own lusts; and they mouth great swelling words, flattering people to gain advantage. 17  But you, beloved, remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ: 18  how they told you that there would be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own ungodly lusts. 19  These are sensual persons, who cause divisions, not having the Spirit.
20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, 21  keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. 22  And on some have compassion, making a distinction; 23   but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh.

Revelation  1: 4-6  NKJV
Grace to you and peace from Him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven Spirits who are before His throne, 5  and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, 6  and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

John 1:14 NKJV    And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
