130) Grace is not a license to sin

Romans 6:15 What then? Are we to sin because we are not under law but under grace? By no means!

Paul makes it crystal clear that being under grace instead of law DOES NOT mean believers are still slaves to sin and now have a license to sin. New Covenant grace provides believers with new desires and also the power to not sin. A person that professes Christ but is unrepentant and continues full steam ahead in all his sinful behavior has not been regenerated. He may claim to be a believer, but he is not under grace and is still under the wrath of God. Paul makes it clear that God’s grace does not make sin an acceptable option to willingly participate in without concern.

Focus on Christ #130

Romans chapter's 6-8 is a strong rebuke to the carnal Christian belief system that some have today.
