Grace of God in a nutshell, is God doing for us what we can never do for ourselves and what we don't deserve for life. I mean, what God's Grace does for us is what we can't do for ourselves and not at all what we can do for ourselves. Now, that's why we do have weaknesses but God is ever perfect and strong. Moreover, we do have shortcomings, but God's Grace does overshadow them. We equally fail or fall sometimes or rather we are sometimes unfaithful. But, God is infallible and ever faithful unlike us. Anyway, I don't know about you. I (personally) really need more and more Grace. Until God's Grace becomes abundant and fully noticeable in my life or rather, until I'm saved wholly by his Grace. In case you don't know, no human has been saved by his or her works and no human will ever be saved eventually by his or her works. Yes! you heard me right, we all are meant to be saved by God's Grace and nothing more or less. ~Emeasoba George
I think our President, having seen some of these really weird interpretations of the executive orders that he's put out, I think he's more understanding now that we need judges who follow the law, not make law, the judges don't get to psychoanalyze the President to see if the order he issues is lawful. It's either lawful or it's not. I think that it will be real important for America to have judges in the model of Judge (Neil) Gorsuch and (the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin) Scalia, people who serve under the law, under the Constitution, not above it, and they are faithful to the law. They honor it and don't try to remake it as they'd like it to be.
