“An Age of Grace”

Sin is no longer your master, for you no longer live under the requirements of the law. Instead, you live under the freedom of God’s grace. Well then, since God’s grace has set us free from the law, does that mean we can go on sinning? Of course not!

(Romans 6:14-15 NLT)

Sadly, the Christians in Rome weren’t the only ones with a distorted view of grace. There are Christians today who continue to take the concept lightly. Unchristian lifestyles have been excused as living in “an age of grace.” In other words, because God shows us unmerited favor, we feel free to act in any way we please. However, Paul tried to correct this misconception. Just because we’re freed from the Old Testament law and are under grace, he taught, it doesn’t mean that we’re free from moral responsibility. While God shows us undeserved favour and mercy, He still holds us accountable for our actions.

God’s grace isn’t a license to sin.
