God’s Grace is No License to Sin!

God’s grace is a wonderful thing.  We are saved by God’s grace (Ephesians 2:8-9).  In fact, Paul wrote that the more we sin the more God’s grace abounds (Romans 5:20). 

But God’s grace ought never be abused.  God’s grace never gives us a license to sin.  In regard to the abundance of God’s grace, Paul also wrote, “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?  Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?  Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life” (Romans 6:1-4).  As Christians, we are dead to sin, meaning we have separated ourselves from the practice of sin. Be thankful for God’s grace, but never abuse it nor take it for granted
