“What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?”
Romans 6:1 (KJV)
Today, I thought it necessary to balance the message of grace so you do not run off saying you have been forgiven and therefore can indulge freely in sin. The best way to explain the grace of God is to take a look at the love of God. Let us take a look at this example. If you as a child know that your Daddy loves you very much, is always there for you; takes you to school, attends several extra curricula activities like sports with you, is always ready to assist you with your assignment and everything you come to him with. As a child, you know that you will reciprocate by loving him and as a result of your love for your Daddy, there are some things you will not do; not because he said you must not do it, but because you love him too much to hurt him. I am sure you can identify with that. There are some things that may not be wrong out rightly, but because you are not sure of your Daddy’s disposition towards those things, you would most likely rather hold on and find out his opinion first, just because you do not want to hurt him.
That is the same thing with a believer. When you understand the love of God, you do not want to upset Him. You do not want to do anything that will make the devil mock Him. You want to be the son or daughter that He will be proud of. That is what God expects of us. Take time to think of the love of God – the more you understand His love, the less you will commit sin because the only thing that will appeal to you will be to make God happy.
If that be the case, there is no way you will want to continue in sin. Yes, you can fall into sin once in a while, but you will not dwell in sin. You cannot deliberately want to hurt God because you love Him. You want to see Him happy with you and saying “well done my child”. When you understand the love of God, you will be dead to sin.
It is my prayer that the Lord will open your eyes to show you His love.
Romans 6:1 – 23
1 Thessalonians 4
