What is the nature of God's grace? The article describes the differences between God's common grace and God's special grace, in line with the reformed teaching of election. Common grace is extended to all men, but does not lead to salvation. Special grace is extended to the elect, and leads to righteousness in Jesus Christ, and thus salvation.
Common grace is the universal ministry of God. This article acknowledges the current controversy around this term, but maintains that speaking of common grace is still proper. The term 'common grace' refers to God as being the Creator of everything and being omnipresent, sovereign and kind. This He displays to all - believers and unbelievers.
