defined grace as God coming into a

every need of thnt life. Accepting
thi- definition we see that grace fully
provides the salvation that man needs,
lie needs salvation from the sins of

sin's power; he reeds salvation from
sins of the future- sin'- presence.
Grace meets these needs bv giving

on Cavalry's cross. Grace brings this
