Grace is an interesting word. It derives from the Greek, charis. In secular Greek, Charis was related to chairo, "to rejoice". As far back as Homer, it denoted "attractiveness" or "sweetness". It came to signify "favor", "good will", and "loving kindness". In the New Testament, "grace" takes on a special redemptive sen in which God makes available his favor on behalf of sinners who do not deserve it.
