Grace Is Not A Credit Card

Live as free men, but do not use your freedom as a cover up for evil; live as servants of God. -1 Peter 2:16

In plain English: Jesus died to pay your debts, not to open up a tab.

Sinning on purpose with the pre-planned intention of repenting after the fun is done– not cool. Of course, you’ll be forgiven every single time, but when you stand before Christ and try to tell Him how you fell and just couldn’t get up, He will probably say something like, “No, son, you jumped”. 

I’m not talking about those struggling with habitual sin with a sincere desire in their heart for change and for salvation.  I’m talking about the ‘untouchable sinners’ who glide through life on a cloud of forgiveness and imaginary invincibility, denying themselves nothing.  Now that’s cold.
