3 Mistakes Christians Make About Grace


It so important that we understand how much our sins hurt our Heavenly Father's heart. Only then will we take our faith seriously.

We must avoid these 3 mistakes:

1. Thinking God’s grace is "free."(1)

We can't earn it, but Christ paid an enormous price for our salvation. This truth should inspire us to take our sins seriously.

Galatians 3:13-14; 1 Corinthians 6:20; 1 Peter 1:18-19

2. Downplaying repentance because our sins are forgiven.

When we follow Christ, all of our sins – past, present, and future – are forgiven. But our love for Christ compels us to acknowledge God's purity and remember His grace by confessing and repenting whenever we sin.

1 John 1:8-10

3. Thinking God doesn't care how devoted we are.

Christians can grieve God or please Him. We should have a deep desire to please Him. 

Romans 12:1; Ephesians 4:30Ephesians 5:10

 ------------------
(1) God did not lower His standards of purity to forgive us. Christ paid the debt we owed.
