Romans 6:1 ” What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase?”

Throughout his letter to the Romans, Paul argues against the idea of getting “Fire Insurance”. What do I mean? It’s accepting Jesus into your life but refusing to actually conform to the moral Will of God. It’s trying to pull one over on the Lord…of having your cake and eating it too. It’s banking on God’s loving kindness and gracious disposition towards us that He’ll continue to forgive, and forgive, and forgive…regardless of what wickedness we do. But begging forgiveness after the fact, (particularly only when/if we get caught) rather than changing our ways in the first place is what ” becoming a new creation” is all about . (II Corinthians 5:17)
