1 The Tension Between Grace and Sin

2 Grace gives us freedom from the task master of the law, but not the freedom to continue live in sin.
Ephesians 2 (8 -9) For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; 9 not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.   2 Cor.5 (19) “namely that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Rom.6 (1-2)  what shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin so that grace may increase? 2 May it never be! How shall we who died to sin still live in it?  Romans 6(14-15) For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law but under grace. What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? May it never be!!

3 His Grace Empowers Me for Success
Romans 3(23) for all have *sinned and fall short of the glory of God. *Hamartanō-to miss the mark The root word* means much more than just missing the bull’s eye from time to time. To miss the mark is: Not to share in the prize. Philippians 3(14) I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. John 17(22)“The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one.'' Christ in us the hope of Glory. Col. 1(27) IS Restorative

4 Keep Your Grace On Grace is not an excuse for me to continue in sin. The wonderful revelation of the Glory of Grace of which I understand, is that I have God's ability to keep me free from the bondage of sin. Grace is not an attitude of having a tolerance for sin but rather one that is Intolerant of sin. Why? Because it allows the enemy a place rob, kill, and destroy the destiny that God has planned for my life. Grace is the finished work of Christ that empowers me through faith to believe and receive His promises for today T.I.T.D.O.S.

5 The Power of Grace is the Power of Choice
Eph. 4(17-21)  if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught in Him, just as truth is in Jesus, 22 that, in reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, 23 and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, 24 and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.  Romans 12(1-2) 1 Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.   Col 3(9-10 )  Do not lie to one another, since you laid aside the old self with its evil practices, 10 and have put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him—

6 How does God interact with me ''If'' I do sin???
1John 2(1) my little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.  Advocate (paraklētos)to come along the side as a comforter, one who pleads another's cause with one, an intercessor.  John 14(16)“I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper (paraklētos) that He may be with you forever;  John 14(26) “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.  John 15(26) “When the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, that is the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify about Me,

7 Grace is Living Life Through His Love & Power
Eph.1(2-4)  Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, 4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him In love. (Heart of the New Covenant) Eph.1(18-19) I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might. Eph. 4(1)Therefore I, the prisoner of the Lord, implore you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called.

8 Grace is freedom from the law but not from sinful living.
The focus of missing the mark is not about not receiving the prize. Grace doesn't tolerate sin because it destroys destiny. Grace is the power of choice….. to lay the old self down and the authority to put the new self on. Grace is the empowerment of a renewed mind in Christ. Grace is the Godhead's heart to restore you if you do sin. Grace is a life style empowered by His strength not ours. Grace is perfectly portrayed in the heart of the Godhead through the ministry of Jesus.
