Common Grace

Common Grace refers to the grace of God that is common to all humankind. It is "common" because its benefits are experienced by the whole human race without distinction between one person and another. It is "grace" because it is undeserved and sovereignly bestowed by God. In this sense, it is distinguished from the Calvinistic understanding of "special" or "saving" grace, which extends only to those whom God has chosen to redeem.

Last Sunday during the Sunday School hour, I taught on the doctrine of Common Grace. We are working our way through the Puritan Catechism and have reached Question 28.
