“Isn’t It Risky to Embrace Grace?”
from the series The Grace Awakening
Romans 6:1–15; Galatians 5:13–14


A proper emphasis on the grace of God can result in grace being taken advantage of. As a matter of fact, this not only can occur, it does occur. There are some in the family of God who have been justified by faith, yet they have chosen lifestyles that do not square with Scripture. If and when those believers are asked, “How can you . . .?” they usually use the word grace somewhere in their answers.

Such rationalization cheapens the correct meaning of grace. God never extended His favor toward us so we might misappropriate the freedom it brings. Nevertheless, there will always be a few who abuse a good thing. And this will cause some to deemphasize grace and overemphasize law. Let's clarify and analyze this tension while being careful not to allow the abuse of a few to diminish the message of grace.
