There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. Romans 8:1-2
There’s a false gospel message going around that states, “You can sin all you want because God’s grace covers your sins.” This is a completely wrong theological point of view that can have severe consequences to those that follow it. I want to make it very clear that God is gracious and merciful. The blood that Jesus shed on the cross for all of us has taken away our past, present and future sins. However, this doesn’t give us a license to sin.
Romans 6:1-2- What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? 2 Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it?
The Apostle Paul makes it very clear that we shouldn’t be living in sin because God has given us His grace. If we continue to sin purposefully, then we are abusing God’s grace. Jesus didn’t die so that we could live in sin. He died so that we could be free from sin. He shed His blood on the cross to forgive us of our sins. God shows us His love by giving us His grace. Sin no longer has a hold on us. We have eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Romans 5:20-21- 20 Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more, 21 so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
God’s grace is amazing! It’s awesome to know that even though we may sin and mess up, it’s through the blood of Jesus that we are able to stand up again and live for God. His grace helps us to acknowledge that we have victory over sin. It’s by His grace that we have been saved through our faith in Jesus Christ. We can’t save ourselves, only God can save us and He did it through His grace.
Ephesians 2:8-9- 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.
We are truly loved and it is shown through God’s grace.
