Grace, Sin, and Law

Romans 6:14-15King James Version (KJV)
14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.

What is sin? 

The easiest answer is any rebellion against God. Sin pulls us away from having a relationship with God. God is a righteous God and cannot be in the presence of unholiness. 

What is the law? 

Law is Torah.Torah is a Hebrew word that translates to guidance and instruction.  These are the laws that were given by God to guide our lives. The Old Testament and New Testament also gives us synonyms to Torah such as commandments, ordinances, law, etc. 

What is grace? 

Grace is something that we are given by God even though we do not deserve it. Grace is necessary for our salvation. We are declared just (justification) by a righteous God because Jesus died on the cross and paid our price. This justification comes only by the grace of God. 

So can we continue to sin since we have Grace?

A condition of our salvation is true repentance. Repentance is the act of turning from our sin. Sin means that we are violating God’s law. So we must not sin. 

Because of God’s Grace and love we are no longer bound to our sin. It does not matter what the sin is. It does not matter how bad God has provided a way for us to no longer be a slave to that sin. 

God can do miracles in your life if you are willing to accept Him. God wants to remove these strongholds right now.
