"What Then?"

“What Then?”

Blessings folk!!

Paul brings home an issue of “grace” that often occurs in the Church…

It occurs to such a degree, that many true believers reject the total truths of grace due to fear of abusing grace.

Heed the Word of the Lord…

- Rom 6:15
What then? Should we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Absolutely not!

Paul, led by the Spirit, was anticipating a response from a group of true believers.

The reasoning is this.
- “Sin is ok, because grace will cover it.”
“The more I sin, the more grace that will come my way.”

No more foolish than many things heard in the church today.

The response?
Absolutely not!
Or…as in other translations…”May it never be!”

We are “under the law” in a manner of speaking.
Jesus fulfilled the Law.
We are in Jesus.
We are to abide in Him.

Therefore, sin not!
