Bible Reading: Titus 2: 11-12

Memory VerseWhat then shall we say? Shall we persist in sin that grace may abound? Of course not! Romans 6:1 (NAB)

Grace is the person of Jesus. The scripture is clear that Grace means God’s Riches At Christ’s Expense, which leads to repentance, forgiveness, salvation, mercies, favour and goodness of the Lord towards mankind. Grace gives us what we do not deserve – forgiveness and favour of God and saves us from what we equitably deserve – hell, gloom and destructions as a result of our sins. But some modern day preachers and Christians have twisted, turned and overstretched the grace of God to mean what the Bible did not say.

Some of the wrong doctrines of grace include:

1. Whatever you do as a Christian is covered by grace, even if you lie, cheat, falsify records and steal.

2. Once you are saved, you are saved forever. Whatever you do with your flesh doesn’t matter – even if you are immoral, lustful, committing premarital and extra marital sex, etc.

3. You can smoke, drink alcohol, abuse substances and live in carnal pleasures because God is not petty to judge you by those small weaknesses.

4. There is nothing you do that can make God to stop loving you, even if you move from sin to sin, abort pregnancies and abuse your positions as a pastor over the sheep of the Lord.

5. Your prosperity is what matters to God, even if you engage in corrupt practices, get-rich-quick syndrome and cannot explain how you got about your riches.

6. Material things such as latest cars, houses, 5-star hotels, aircraft, gold, and first class holidays are proves of God’s grace in your life – even if you got them crookedly and live in flagrant disobedience to God’s Word.

7. Divorce, remarriage, gay lifestyle, and masturbation doesn’t matter, so long you are covered by God’s grace, since God understand your little, little weaknesses.

8. Sins are just human weaknesses that we should not talk about in our churches, so that we don’t make our people to be sin conscious – we should be positive, not negative minded.

All the aforementioned are wrong beliefs of the doctrines of grace propagated by some wolves in sheep’s clothing.

QuoteLike freedomgrace is not the absence of caution. 

Prophetic Decree: The grace of God shall not deplete over your life, in Jesus name.

Prayer Focus

1. O Lord, I am sorry for the abuse of your grace upon my life.

2. Holy Spirit, please help me to walk in grace, and not to abuse it, in Jesus name.

3. I receive grace to manage grace, in Jesus name.

4. Holy Spirit, please purge me from all the excesses of grace taught in this generation.

5. I receive wisdom to walk in grace with caution, in Jesus name.
