Defend His Grace

3 Dear friends, I had been eagerly planning to write to you about the salvation we all share. But now I find that I must write about something else, urging you to defend the faith that God has entrusted once for all time to His holy people. 4 I say this because some ungodly people have wormed their way into your churches, saying that God’s marvelous grace allows us to live immoral lives. The condemnation of such people was recorded long ago, for they have denied our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ. ~ Jude 1:3-4NLT

From the time of Jude to now, nothing has changed. The Church has been infiltrated by those who lead us astray due to our lack of knowledge of the Scripture. The Church, all of us, can no longer quote Scripture in defense of our beliefs as the First Church could. They studied Scripture. The Bereans even fact-checked Paul, the greatest apostle who ever lived, but us today, we accept the watered-down Gospel because we truly don’t know any better.

If we could grasp the love of God and how His grace truly works, then we wouldn’t use His love as an excuse for us and others to sin. We’d understand that there is a need for a healthy amount of fear, just as a child should have a healthy fear of their parents. God doesn’t just give us free passes for sin because of grace. He took our sin upon Himself so that He could pay our debt and we could be forgiven. Don’t abuse grace, and don’t allow others to believe they can abuse grace, either.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Defend His Grace.
