All the blessings which God hath bestowed upon man are of his mere grace, bounty, or favour; his free, undeserved favour; favour altogether undeserved; man having no claim to the least of his mercies.
It was free grace that "formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into him a living soul," and stamped on that soul the image of God, and "put all things under his feet." The same free grace continues to us, at this day, life, and breath, and all things. For there is nothing we are, or have, or do, which can deserve the least thing at God's hand.
"All our works, Thou, O God, hast wrought in us." These, therefore, are so many more instances of free mercy: and whatever righteousness may be found in man, this is also the gift of God.
Grace: God’s free, undeserved favor
*** Image: Grace
Prevenient grace is the divine grace that works in a person's life before they even seek God. It is the grace that goes before and prepares the heart to respond to God's love.
Justifying grace is the grace by which a person is forgiven of their sins and justified before God. It is through this grace that a person is reconciled with God and receives salvation.
Sanctifying grace is the ongoing work of the Holy Spirit in the believer's life, transforming them to become more Christlike and enabling them to live a holy life.

Romans 5:15 NRSV
But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died through the one man’s trespass, much more surely have the grace of God and the free gift in the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, abounded for the many.
Romans 5:18 NRSV
Therefore just as one man’s trespass led to condemnation for all, so one man’s act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all.
