Titus 2:11 “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world.”
The bible says ‘Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin’ according to James 4:17. If a good thing that was known by men to be good but failed in doing it become a sin to such a person, how much more an evil thing known to be evil in every ramifications and yet being done by men? Will such a practitioner of the evil thing be justified in the presence of GOD? This will certainly never be!
Often times we hear Christians sing and boast that we are under grace and as such anytime sin is committed, the grace of GOD will always be there to forgive. This have in doubt caused many to sin wilfully and yet expects that the grace of GOD would always be there to forgive coupled with the fact that some churches and pastors have no more messages outside grace nowadays. This has make mockery of the grace of GOD as nobody sees any punishment for sin and ungodly behaviours and attitudes anymore.
Paul therefore had to asked the proponent of ‘grace only’ as the sole means of getting to heaven without any other form of action or effort on their own side and said “Shall we continue in SIN, that GRACE may abound?” Brethren, GOD indeed forbid! Romans 6:1-2. We cannot continue in our sinful lust and desire and expects the grace of GOD to abound. This is surely an impossibility no matter how much grace you profess.
One thing that most of us failed to remember is the fact that continuous repetition of same sinful lifestyle and supposed prayer of forgiveness to GOD over such thing is that such sin have been made perfect in us as we no longer care about its consequences hence we going into it over and over again with the perception that GOD will always forgive no matter what! You are daily abusing the grace of GOD and you expect to wake up in Abraham’s bosom at your death in sin? What a miserable pain that awaits you in eternity in the great beyond!
“And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent” Acts 17:30. Wilful sin cannot be equated with sin committed through ignorance. You that know that you are committing sin and keep on doing it claiming that it is ignorance on your part, you are only doing yourself harm. Please repent of your sin now before you land in hell by your wilful abuse of GOD’S grace. True grace must abhor sin and sinful tendencies. So if your grace is the one that lead you to sin and you think you are heaven-bound, you will be greatly disappointed over there.
Therefore, do not allow anyone to sweet coat you in your sins as this is the greatest delusions that can befall you. The grace of GOD hates lies, forgeries, embezzlement, cheating, false witness, backbiting, slander and it is a firm reproval of evil and wickedness. Whenever you are comfortable in your sins, know that you are on your sure way to hell. Please make a u-turn now and GOD will have mercy on you.
Revelation 3:22 “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.”
LORD, help me every seconds of my life not to abuse your divine grace. Do not let men to deceive me with the message of grace while encouraging me to sin against You. Help me to be conscious of sin and keep me from falling. Thank you JESUS for answering my prayers. Amen.
