Knowledge For The Day Devotional 27 October 2022 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Don’t Misappropriate Grace

TOPIC: Don’t Misappropriate Grace (TREM Devotional 27 October 2022)

“What let’s say then? Lets proceed in sin, that grace could abound? God forbid. How we could, which can be useless to sin, reside any longer therein?” Romans 6:1-2 (KJV)

MESSAGE:

There are some inside the Christian circle who say Grace has saved me and I can do no matter I would like. No! Grace doesn’t perform that means. When you actually obtain Grace, you’ll serve God with all of your coronary heart. You’ll serve Him along with your dedication. You’ll serve Him along with your dedication. You don’t want anybody to pressure you, manipulate you, cajole you or police you to serve Him. The love of God constrains you to do what you possibly can to say: Lord, I admire you.

Once I see individuals going about misapplying or misappropriating Grace by saying “Oh, thank God, Grace has saved me and I’m assured heavens” however proceed in sin, my coronary heart aches. Sure, Grace has saved you, however Grace teaches you to reside proper. Grace doesn’t educate you to misbehave. As a brand new creation, you don’t have the character of sin. Actually, with out anybody policing you, you possibly can’t love sin. If you end up dwelling in sin and you might be having fun with it, it’s a must to query your self whether or not you have been actually saved within the first occasion as a result of the character of sin is just not in you. I should affirm in case your nature was actually modified as a result of it isn’t within the nature of the brand new creation to sin.

In keeping with the e book of two Corinthians 5:17, “if any man be in Christ, he’s a brand new creation, previous issues are handed away behold all issues are turn out to be new.” When you put a pig in a mud, it can lie down and revel in itself as a result of that’s its nature. Mud is pure to it, however mud is just not pure to fish. Earlier than you have been saved, it was pure to sin and also you don’t really feel any guilt about it. You’ll be able to lie with out feeling responsible. However not if you find yourself saved. As a born-once more little one of God, there are stuff you can’t be proud about even once you make errors in them. Sinful atmosphere is not your pure habitat.
