The most popular argument against the teaching of grace is that “it is a licence to sin” but there is really no strong basis for this argument. Our understanding of what and who grace is totally debunks such theories and ideologies, for we know that Christ came for this very purpose – to save us from our sins (Matthew 1:21). Besides, you can’t truly know and receive God’s love and the next thing you want to do is run back into sin.
The Apostle Paul addressing the Roman church concerning this particular issue wrote this for our benefit:
“What shall we say, then? Should we continue to live in sin so that God’s grace will increase? Certainly not! We have died to sin- how then can we go on living in it?” Romans 6:1-2
Grace is not a licence for anyone to continue in sin because we have been baptized into union with Christ Jesus and his death hence, we have victory over sin.
In conclusion, the grace of God is the greatest gift and the most powerful weapon made available to all men through and in the person of Jesus Christ. It is only accessible by faith and is given freely so that, regardless of what we have done or who we have been in the past, we can partake of it.
Grace is not based on man’s work but on God’s choice, and the good news is that He has chosen you!
