Just do whatever feels good and doesn’t hurt other people. Good advice, right? No. That is horrible advice. Like, really bad. Don’t be tricked into putting the pursuit of pleasure before the pursuit of obedience. Learn to imitate Jesus, rather than people around you. Grace cost Jesus everything. Truly living by grace will cost us too.
That’s a fact. But it’s worth it. “But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if many died through one man’s trespass, much more have the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for many.”
All of us face times where we have to choose between living for grace and living for pleasure – make sure you know in advance which one is really going to give you the life you want.
