Grace is a Perfection of God’s Divine Character

Grace is a perfection of the divine character which is exercised only toward the elect.  Neither in the Old Testament nor in the New is the grace of God ever mentioned in connection with mankind generally, still less with the lower orders of His creatures.  In this it is distinguished from “mercy,” for the mercy of God is “over all His works” (Psalm 145:9)  Grace is the sole source from which floes the goodwill, love and salvation of God unto His chosen people.
