Under Gods Command

Romans 6:1-2 What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase?  By no means! We died to sin; how can we live in it any longer. 

 If God loves to forgive, why not give him more to forgive? If forgiveness is guaranteed, do we have the freedom to sin as much as we want?  Paul’s forceful answer is By no means! Such an attitude deciding ahead of time to take advantage of God-shows that a person does not understand the seriousness of sin.  God’s forgiveness does not make sin less serious; his Son’s death for sin shows us the dreadful seriousness of sin.  Jesus paid with his life so we could be forgiven.

Lets Bring it Home:  The availability of God’s mercy must not become an excuse for careless living and moral laxness.
