Romans 6:1, New International Version

“What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase?”

My dear fellow brothers and sisters, do you have a firm answer to Paul’s question? This was his statement, “By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.” (Romans 6:2-4, NIV) And this statement is for all who claim they believe in Jesus and accept Him as their Lord and Savior! Look at the word “Lord”. Jesus is not pleased because we call Him Lord with our lips, but when we obey Him as the Lord of our life! (Matthew 7:22-29)


“For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him.” (Romans 6:9, NIV)


Jesus cannot die again! And if we love Him, how could we be okay to nail Him on that cross again? (Hebrews 6:6) There is no way for us to justify abusing the grace that Jesus offers through His sacrificial love. Grace is not a ticket to sin against God, nor an open door for us to walk in disobedience. Grace came through a process in which God made Himself like man, from almighty to becoming nothing, and to bled and die for. If you know the path of Calvary and that our Lord walked through it, then you should know exactly what I mean!


Grace contains truth, the undeniable truth from the King – the Lord Himself. Jesus stated, “Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say?” (Luke 6:46, NIV) We need to understand that His grace is sufficient in our weakness, yet it doesn’t mean willingly disobeying His Word is acceptable to Him. He requires His disciples to obey His commands and He desires our obedience to come from the love that we have for Him. (John 14:15, 21:15-25)


Please be sure, disciple of Jesus, what is God declares the devil denies. We need to decide if God reigns in our life or if we will allow sin to give way for the enemy reign. The devil enjoys taking every advantage he can get. He is wandering around and waiting for an open door to oppress whoever he can and hold them captive as a slave. A slave of sin, a slave of addiction, a slave of work, a slave of possessions, a slave to emotion…if you do not belong to the Kingdom of God, you have no freedom from the enemy.


Jesus has not left you alone to fight and resist the schemes of the enemy. He sent His Spirit – the Spirit of truth, He gave you His word, and He is interceding on your behalf. Put on the armor of God, fight the good fight, and finish the race. Be excited for the day the Lord Jesus will welcome you through the golden gate!
