A way of living, or new law of grace, shows us a deeper understanding of the law. It shows us how it was supposed to be lived from the beginning, and the divine Son of God, showed us how to live it.
Actual grace is that grace that assists us in our daily lives. It inspires us and guides our minds to focus on the things of God and assists us on our journey to the beatific vision.
