Part 1: Taking off Your Disquise!!
The grace of God is not a license to sin giving you free reign to do as you please...I believe that some Christians take that to mean that they can keep sinning. Now that is nothing more than the worst kind of delusional thinking - by thinking you can get away with it, and calling it grace. You will not escape the stronghold of whatever sin you believe you can get away with. There is no "easy grace" to lean on. If you do not repent and ask and receive God's forgiveness you will not escape the wrath and destruction of sin's devastation.
The grace of God does not exempt you from reaping what you sow, good or bad...you will reap the consequences of the results of the awful stain of sin within your soul...with out the shed blood of Jesus, there is no "remission" of sins. Only by that blood will we truly find grace. Only by that blood washing your soul will we find that stain completely healed and cleansed of all defilement. The life and resurrection of Jesus Christ is the only truest form of grace we will ever see on this earth.
Sin and the grace of God is very different, and can be related to tracking in mud on a freshly mopped floor. If you think about it, there is no such place in grace that the effects of sin can touch. Grace cannot look sin the face and vice versa. The two are vastly different. I believe there is such a divine place in the sacredness of His grace that you will not desire to commit any sin or to continue in its destructive path. YOU have to desire to get to the place of grace. Sin affects the soul of man, grace washes it clean and sets you in place to be king and priests of the Most High God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob!!!
It is high time to take off those muddy boots before attempting to walk into you holy vocation -- the very holiness of God in all His grace! You are only robbing your own soul, and calling it grace when you so willingly give in to sin's destruction?
What a tragedy waiting to happen to you! Such a travesty!!
On a side note, I looked up the definition of travesty. Sometimes the Holy Spirit gives me tough words. This points me to the dictionary to get a picture of those words. Here is what I found, and I believe it to be the truth.
"A travesety is a cheap mockery, usually of something or somone serious, such as a travesty of justice.
A travesty is a silly imitation, like a tall young man dressed up like a little old lady. Travesty and transvestite both come from French travesti meaning "dressed in disquise," so it helps to remember the definition of travesty by thinking of that football player in drag.
A travesty can be more than that, though. A travesty of justice, for example, is a court case that makes a mockery of the system, or so you might think if the verdict isnt in "your favor."
So let me give this to you straight... You are making a mockery of God, trying to justify your continual sinning, and disguising it as your own free grace. That reminds me of a hypocrite. I hope this makes you really think....that is the purpose I feel inspired to share this very strong word to you.
In that sacred place of grace, you come to experience the eternal qualities of God and His abiding presence. You come to know His power and holiness and freedom from the strongholds of sin's grasp. He gives us the power to say no and resist the temptation that would weigh us down in bondage.
