DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Do Not Take God’s Grace In Vain
2 Cor. 6:1-10
It takes the grace of God for a sinner who is neck-deep in iniquities to be saved and washed by the blood of Jesus. By the same grace, such a believer is justified and is seen as if he had never committed any offence before. What an amazing grace! If, however, such a sinner now sees God as a loving and merciful God who would not mind if he commits more sins after conversion, believing that God will always forgive him, such a person has received the grace of God in vain because he does not understand and appreciate God’s grace that brought salvation to Him. He has abused that grace.
Point of Emphasis: Do not use your liberty in Christ as an occasion to sin.
Prayer Point: Lord, help me not to receive Your grace in vain, but to appreciate it.
