Grace flows down

Grace

Charis in the Greek language.

That which affords joy, pleasure, delight, sweetness, loveliness.

From the good will, loving-kindness, and favor of the merciful God who exerts His holy influence upon souls, turning them to Christ.

His grace keeps, strengthens, increases my faith, knowledge and affection.

It kindles the exercise of Christian virtue.

It is a gift, this Charis.  Grace.  Undeserved favor.

For by grace I am saved through faith . . . ; it is the gift of God. (Ephesians 2:8)

I who was dead have been made alive by grace.  (Ephesians 2:1)

My God and Father has given me everlasting consolation and good hope by grace.  (2 Thessalonians 2:16)

My heart is strengthened by grace. (Hebrews 13:9)

Through Christ I receive abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness. (Romans 5:17)

So I will come boldly to the throne of grace where I will obtain mercy and find grace to help in my time of need. (Hebrews 4:16)

And it will be enough.  Exceedingly abundant grace.  Amazing.  Grace.
