Read Open Heaven Daily Devotional December 13 2022:
SCRIPTURE: What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? 2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Romans 6:1-2 (KJV).
Grace is the supernatural ability given to us by God to live in constant obedience to Him. The Bible says in Romans 6:14: For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.Grace is not a license to sin. Grace is an enablement to do the will of God. If victory over sin was impossible, Christ would not have died. His death would have been in vain. Matthew 1:21 says:
And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.
If you belong to Jesus Christ, God will give you grace to live above sin so that it would no longer control you. Don’t let the false teachers deceive you into believing that grace gives you the liberty to sin; the wages of sin is still death. God is coming back for a Church without any spot or wrinkle. If you want to be a part of that Church, then you have to stay away from sin.
That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. – Ephesians 5:27
If you have sinned, God is willing to have mercy on you because of His grace, but if you decide to take that grace for granted by making sin a habit, then you are calling for damnation. The Bible says that God forbids it that you continue in sin, using the excuse of His abundant grace.
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? – Romans 6:1-2
A true born-again Christian will be seeking the grace of God so as to be completely dead to sin and not as an excuse to sin.
