What Is Biblical Grace - Bible Study on Saving Grace
Biblical grace is God's treasures given to us freely!
Biblical grace is the treasures of Christ that are given to us without any merit on our part. True Biblical grace is absolutely free. I like the acrostic: G God's, R Riches, A At, C Christ's, Expense. As a Christian, I rely on God's grace alone for my salvation!
Perhaps the thorniest task for us to carry out is to rely on God's grace and God's grace alone for our salvation. It is not easy for our pride to give over to grace. Grace is for others; we want to earn our own way; we do not want welfare. Somehow we want to go to heave because we deserve to be there! This lens is a short study (with several resources on Biblical grace!

Bible Study on Saving Grace
A general definition of "grace" is; "mercy; clemency; pardon: an act of grace." [ Dictionary.com Unabridged (v 1.1). Random House, Inc. 28 Jun. 2007. ]
To even begin to understand God's grace, we must first realize God is so pure and holy that, before Him, all sin is a filthy stain which must be wiped out. On our own merits, we stand condemned before Him.
Romans 3:23 - "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God"
Romans 6:23 - "For the wages of sin [is] death; but the gift of God [is] eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord"
Some find using G.R.A.C.E. as an acronym for "God's Riches at Christ's Expense" to be helpful in remembering that God's gift of eternal life is made available at the expense of the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus Christ.
Here are two of the numerous Bible verses proclaiming the principle of Grace.
John 3:16-22 - 16) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17) For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18) He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19) And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20) For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21) But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. 22) After these things came Jesus and his disciples into the land of Judaea; and there he tarried with them, and baptized.
Titus 2:11-14 - 11) For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 12) Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; 13) Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 14) Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
