If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet
walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the
if we walk
in the Light as He Himself is in the Light,
we have fellowship with one another, and
the blood of
Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.
8If we say that we have no sin, we are
deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us.
9If we confess our sins, He is faithful and
righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us
from all unrighteousness. 10If we say
that we have not sinned, we make Him
a liar and His word is not in us. 1 John
What About A Person Who Sins Willfully...Hoping
that God's Grace Will Continue to Abound?
Should we continue to sin, hoping that grace may
increase? Should we ignore the teachings of
the Bible hoping that God's grace will always cover
Romans 6:1-2 -- What shall we
say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace might
increase? May it never be! How shall we who died to
sin still live in it?" (NAS)
Romans 6:15 -- What then? Shall
we sin because we are not under law but under grace?
May it never be! (NAS)
James 4:17 -- Therefore, to one
who knows the right thing to do, and does not do it,
to him it is sin. (NAS)
Jesus said in Matthew 7:13-14 --
"Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide, and
the way is broad that leads to destruction, and many
are those who enter by it. "For the gate is small,
and the way is narrow that leads to life, and few
are those who find it. (NAS)
Jesus said in Matthew 7:21-23 --
"Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will
enter the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the
will of My Father who is in heaven. "Many will say
to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy
in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and
in Your name perform many miracles?' "And then I
will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from
Me, you who practice lawlessness.' (NAS)
