GRACE – He has no other way

A knowledge of this grace, of this free pardon, truly knowing and understanding that we will never ever be condemned for our sin, our wrong doing will never ignite God’s anger towards us because he satisfied His anger in Christ on the cross – truly knowing we have complete and utter freedom sets us free from the desire to sin.

As Roy Hession says in The Power of God’s Grace:

“Men can abuse grace, but that is the risk God takes. God might have added all sorts of extra conditions…but has decided to let grace be grace, and to attach no strings to it. If grace does not produce holiness, He has no other way. But it does produce holiness.”

In fact, I would suggest the only way any of us can live a truly holy and righteous life is seeing ourselves the way God sees us – draped in a robe of His righteousness, cleansed by the blood of Christ.

  1. I agree that salvation by Grace alone is a big part of Pauline theology. Interestingly, though, this is not a perspective shared across the board by all New Testament writers. Matthew implies that it is still necessary to follow the old Jewish law to gain salvation. matthew also states that on the day of judgement we will be judged according to how we have treated others. The book of James appears to be written directly to contradict the idea of salvation by Grace alone.
