TEXT: ROMANS 6:1-2
(1) What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
(2) God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
KEY VERSE: GALATIANS 2:21
I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.
Grace is frustrated when the truth is not obeyed. That is what the Church is doing in our days. They are frustrating the grace of God. That is why sin abounds. The Church today goes on grace. Challenge somebody and ask him why he smokes? He will tell you that we are saved by grace. Challenge a minister why he impregnated a church member? He will tell you that this work is by grace. Challenge somebody why he told a lie? He will tell you that if it is not grace, nobody can make it to heaven. Challenge a woman why she gives her body to men? She will tell you that God has to consider my case. I cannot stay like that, I am in the state of marriage and God knows what is happening in my body. In fact, He has to show me grace. That is the Church of our time.
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?
They never reveal truth. They never search the Scriptures to show truth. How can you have the Christian life, make it to heaven and overcome temptations? How can you stand before God undefiled, not knowing the truth? You know more of prayer than studying the Bible. Prayer vigils are filled to the brim but Bible studies are empty. That is the Church of our time. It is during prayers to cast out Satan that the people become serious. When praying on something else; like God give us grace, wisdom or we want to live holy lives, you will see the people counting their words. But when you say we want to bind satan, all those enemies, witches and wizards, those sleeping will wake up as if they are pursuing a thief.
This is because the mind is not exercised for truth. We are sighing, Holy Ghost, do it again in our lives, open our eyes to see Jesus, but our eyes can only be opened by truth. For him that loves Me will keep My commandments and they that keep My commandments, I will come in to them and manifest Myself unto them. If you want Jesus, you must come back to truth. You want Jesus, God, freedom, victory, deliverance, to be rapture ready and have eternal life, you must come back to the truth; not only grace, but grace and truth. Those that talk about grace alone are enemies of righteousness and deceivers. Therefore, come out from among them.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Always study the word of God to know the truth for your eternal life.
SONG FOR THE DAY: Lord teach me Your word, I want to know Your word…
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: Exodus 25-26; Matthew 21:1-22
