“What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not!” (Romas 6:15).
As human’s we have a tendency to “go into the ditch on one side or the other.” Some find sin where there is none and others think it’s O.K. to sin because the grace of God allows it.
Jesus bore our sins on the cross, not to make sin legal, but to free us from it’s hold of slavery.
Many today seem to be falling prey to the belief that we can do anything we want without consequence. Some even believe there’s no reason to repent, because the grace of God has already forgiven our sins.
This could not be any further from the truth.
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). God said He’d forgive us our sins if we would confess them, which implies He won’t forgive them if we don’t confess them.
There are many warnings in the New Testament about turning from sin. I encourage you do so. I know in my life it has become more important. Sin breaks our fellowship with the sweet presence of the Lord and I don’t want that to happen.
But if we do sin, PTL, we can confess those sins and He’s faithful and just to forgive us of sin and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
