“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. 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 1:3-4 (NLT)
Today I want you to know that God expects you to live right as a Christian saved by grace. This is because the grace that saved you also sanctifies you to live right. You live right because you are saved.
We who are saved have the life and nature of God because we are righteous, so we can live right. There are Christians who struggle with sin because they do not know who they are. When you know that you are righteous, it means you have received the ability to live right.
For instance, I don’t bark like a dog because I know I am a human. Because I know who I am, I function in a particular way. I know I am a man so I act like a man. The way you see yourself is what determines the way you will act.
Therefore as the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, see yourself that way and act that way.
In the Name of Jesus, I declare that I have received abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness, therefore I reign in life by my Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
