Grace&Sin

Do you not think that it is time you gave your life to Jesus? Why do you hesitate? Jesus didn’t hesitate to lay down his crown in heaven to come to the earth to die for your sins. Really why do you still refuse to embrace his love? For the scriptures records in John 3vs16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

I love the person of Jesus and I’m pleasured to obey His instructions. In John 14vs15 Jesus said “If ye love me, keep my commandments.” You cannot be unwilling to obey him and yet claim to love him. Nowadays, most Christians claim to love Jesus yet; they do not keep his instructions. Rather, the slogan God’s grace is there for me becomes backup plan or God loves me and he understand why I did what I did, really does he understand? Recently, a friend of mine shared a story with me about her friend whose guardian instructed to come home not later than 2 o’clock am in the morning after prom night but she disobeyed the instruction giving and came home later than that; well the story ends with her having to pack her belongings out of the house to go live elsewhere. And the same applies to disobeying the instructions of Jesus there will always be a negative result. Jesus instructions are there to guide but when you disobey them then you are left with the consequences. Take King Saul for example, God gave him an instruction to destroy the Amalekites totally but he disobeyed and decided to spare the King Agag, and some animals. Samuel the prophet said to him “has the Lord great a delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as in obedience to the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams.” 1 Samuel 15

The great apostle Paul said in Romans 6vs1 “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?” The grace is there to keep you from falling why use it solely to regenerate after you commit that abominable sin? Why? In Romans 6vs14 “for sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.” This implies that the grace of God is meant to help you live above sin because for His grace we now have dominion over sin.

Hey reader, “Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of heaven is near.” Matthew 3vs2
