Are we free to sin under grace?

Posted

What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? Romans 6:15-16

Are we free to sin because we are saved by grace? The answer of God’s Word is an emphatic, “No!” If we yield ourselves to sin, we become enslaved in sin, leading to eternal death. If we continue in true repentance and faith, we are counted righteous in Christ Jesus and will seek to turn away from sin and live for Him.

Dear Father in heaven, forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

[Scripture is quoted from the King James Version of the Bible.]
