NASHVILLE, Tenn. (UMC.org) — “Amazing grace! How sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me.” Many United Methodists know John Newton’s words so well that we can sing more than one verse of this hymn from memory. But we may be a bit fuzzy on the concept of God’s grace. Joe Iovino writes about what John Wesley taught.

God at work before we know it: Prevenient grace
By grace we are forgiven: Justifying grace
Grace’s power over sin: Sanctifying grace
