Topic: Abundance of Grace”
TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: Romans 5:20
Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound.
The apostle Paul was preaching the grace of God so radically that he was misunderstood and accused of telling people to sin more so that grace may abound. Of course, that was not the case. Paul never said, “Let us sin more so that grace may abound.”
(And by the way, neither have I.) Sin is evil, and it leads to destructive consequences. But have you noticed in today’s scripture what it is that actually causes sin to increase? Read today’s scripture again.
Paul states very clearly that the law entered so that sin might abound. What this means is that the more you preach the law, the more sin will abound.
After all, the strength of sin is the law (1 Cor. 15:56). Therefore, when you see sin and you preach more of the law, you are adding wood to fire! Stick to the Good News, and grace will abound!
I am saved by grace, and I can do all things through Christ. Sin no longer has dominion over me. Hallelujah!
