Romans 6:1

"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?" ESV

We know that the grace God gives us includes total freedom in Christ. There are some who are deceived into believing that once we are saved by grace through faith, we are then free to live as we want and it will all be forgiven because we are living under grace. The Word says, this is not so. If we have truly received the grace of God by faith in Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord, we will not be able to live in sin. Oh, yes, we may sin and fall into temptation, but the Holy Spirit will convict us and we will repent and turn from the sin. If we are living a sinful lifestyle or persisting in any sin, we are not alive in the Spirit, but are still dead spiritually because of sin residing in us.

Heavenly Father, how we thank You and praise You for Your amazing grace. Show us our hearts and lives that we may examine ourselves to see if we are dead to sin and alive in our spirit. Help us to remember that Your grace sets us free to say no to sin and to freely resist temptation. We ask this in the name of Jesus, Amen.
