Fear of God Devotional: Denying Ungodliness Here and Now
How should the grace of God affect our lives? Does it give us the liberty to act as our flesh dictates?
Craig Houston explains in this video that all too often, there is an abuse of the grace of God in our current culture. Yet, according to Scripture, we are not to sin so that grace may abound.
Rather, we are to be set apart in a holy way so that their life may be filled with godliness, righteousness, and sobriety in the present world. The same grace that saved a believer now sets them apart for a life of holy living. In the present, the imputed righteousness of Christ should be evident. We should strive that our life demonstrates godliness and righteousness now and not wait until a later time.
2 Corinthians 9:8 (NKJV) – “And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.”
