Grace (Christianity)
In Western Christian theology
Christian theology
, GRACE has been defined, not as a created substance of any kind, but as "the love and mercy given to us by God because God desires us to have it, not necessarily because of anything we have done to earn it", "the condescension or benevolence shown by God toward the human race". It is understood by Christians to be a spontaneous gift from God to people "generous, free and totally unexpected and undeserved" – that takes the form of divine favor , love, clemency, and a share in the divine life of God. It is an attribute of God that is most manifest in the salvation of sinners . Christian orthodoxy holds that the initiative in the relationship of grace between God and an individual is always on the side of God. In Eastern Christianity
Eastern Christianity
too, grace is the working of God completely, not a created substance of any kind that can be treated like a commodity

Friedrich Schelling (1775–1854) coined the word, and Friedrich Welcker (1784–1868) used it to depict primordial monotheism among ancient Greeks. Max Müller
