The grace of God was never meant to be a license for us to abuse God’s character, laws or people. It is instead an empowerment to experience change from glory to glory as we continue our walk with Christ.
An excessive emphasis on relying on grace without having the will power and desire to be set free from sin are the actions of a fool and perpetual backslider.
2 Timothy 2:15-16. “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. But avoid irreverent babble, for it will lead people into more and more ungodliness.”
Romans 6:1-2 .”What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it?”
An unrepentant heart is bound to and in sin. That person has opened the door to wickedness to abound inside as it attempts to justify its unwillingness to truly repent. Know this, one cannot eat the meat of The Word when they aren’t mature enough to obey God’s Word!
