Victory….From Grace!

We are not to live in fear that being under grace will cause us to lack restraint because the word of God makes it clear in ” Romans 6:14, For sin shall not have Dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.”

It’s so unfortunate that there are people twisting God’s word today. They preach that when you are under grace, sin will have dominion over you. This can not be further from the truth. Many have been hood winked by this false teaching that makes people fearful of God’s grace. Gods word is so clear, when you are under grace and not under the law, sin shall not have dominion over you.

The idea that grace will cause people to sin without restraint is a lie and i don’t want to believe it. I just don’t believe we can not be under grace and not be holy any more than you can be under water and not be wet. 
I believe that being under grace gives you the power to live a victorious life.

    1. Well my dear in the house hold of faith, you get to hear a lot. And people are entitled to their own opinions. We just have to know who we are and where we stand in Christ. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing with us. I apologize for the late response from me.

  1. GOD bless you sister..grace provides forgiveness overs sins…but obeying GOD’s laws are better than sacrifice…not obeying GOD’s words are like witchcraft and idol worship warned Samuel to disobedient Saul…he repented..he was forgiven by grace…but yes he lost everything and everyone he had..there can be no grace without Law…Law and Grace march togehter

    1. Thank you gadolelohai for your kind response. But i don’t completely agree that the Law and Grace works together. Grace supercede the Law. Am really glad you shared with us. It’s very thoughtful of you. More grace and apologies for the late response from me.

  2. Let’s see what The Scriptures tell us Whitney about Sin, Paul talked about battling with his Carnal flesh before he was Perfected in Love in Romans 7 he said he was wretched but that Jesus would free Him and than Paul told us we have to put our Carnal flesh to death by The Spirit in Romans 8 and other Scriptures and to be Perfected in Love so we don’t Sin as confirmed below in the Scripture and as we know we can’t add to Scripture, exaggerate it, or take away from it, or do we reject it for what we may think or want or what others tell us in error..

    It is True that we can’t earn our Salvation, it is a free gift but we will show we have it as we work out our Salvation not meaning work for it.

    We put our Carnal flesh to death……

    Romans 8 :12-15 Therefore, brothers/ sisters, we have an obligation but it is not to the Sinful nature, to live according to it. or if you live according to the Sinful nature, you will die but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.

    Colossians 3:4-6 When Christ, who is your life appears then you also will appear with Him in glory. Put to death therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.

    Galatians 24 -26 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. if we live in the Spirit let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory provoking one another, envying one another.

    2 Corinthians 7: 1 Having therefore these promises dearly beloved let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit Perfecting Holiness in the fear of God

    We Aim to be Perfected in Love…..

    Matthew 5:48 Be ye therefore Perfect, even as your Father which is in Heaven is Perfect

    Hebrews 6:1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto Perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God.

    Philippians 3:14-16 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore, as many as be Perfect be thus minded and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded God shall reveal even this unto you. Nevertheless where to we have already attained let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.

    2Timithy 3:17 That the man of God may be Perfect, throughly furnished unto good Works

    1John 4:16-19 And we have known and believed the Love that God hath to us. God is Love; and he that dwelleth in Love dwelleth in God, and God in him. Herein is our Love made Perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is so are we in this world. There is no fear in Love but Perfect Love casteth out fear because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made Perfect in Love. We Love Him, because He first Loved us.

    2Corinthians 13:11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Be Perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in Peace; and the God of Love and Peace shall be with you.

    We do not continue to Sin.

    1 John 3:9 No one who is Born of God will continue to Sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on Sinning because he has been Born of God.

    John 8:34-36 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth everyone who Sins is a slave to Sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

    1 John 5:18-20 We know that no one who is Born of God Sins; but He who was Born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him.

    1 John 3: 1-11 ( 6-7 ) Whosoever abideth in Him Sinneth not: whosoever Sinneth hath not seen Him, neither known Him. Little Children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth Righteousness is Righteous, even as He is Righteous.

    Romans 8 :12-15 Therefore, brothers, we have an obligation but it is not to the Sinful nature, to live according to it. or if you live according to the Sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body you will live because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.

    1 John 2:4-6 He that saith I know Him, and keepeth not His Commandments is a liar and the Truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth His word in him verily is the Love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in Him. He that saith hebideth in Him ought himself also so to walk, even as He walked.

    Romans 6:5-7 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of His death, we shall be also in the likeness of His resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with Him, that the body of Sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve Sin. For he that is dead is freed from Sin.

    Romans 6:11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto Sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    Daniel 12:10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand but the wise shall understand.

      1. We have been set free Whitney from the Slavery of Sin by Jesus, it no longer has dominion over us, we can put our Carnal Flesh to death by The Spirit and be Perfected in Love and no longer Sin the Scripture I shared before and below confirms these Truths.

        John 8:34-36 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth everyone who Sins is a Slave to Sin. Now a Slave has no permanent place in the family but a son/daughter belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free you will be free indeed.

        Romans 6:22-23 But now being made free from Sin and become Servants to God, ye have your Fruit unto Holiness, and the end Everlasting life. For the wages of Sin is death but the gift of God is Eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

        Romans 6:6- 7 For we know that our old self was Crucified with Him so that the body of Sin might be done away with that we should no longer be Slaves to Sin because anyone who has died has been freed from Sin.
