Abused Grace

Our grandson, Camden, Loves to aggravate his little sister. When I confronted him, he says: “Sorry, Pops” He’s not sorry for what he did. He’s sorry he got caught. We’re the same way. We quote: Eph 2:8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God Grace is God’s unmerited favor. In the church today, we abuse it. We treat God’s grace like an EASY button. We sin, we get caught, we say: “Sorry God” And expect it all to go away. All the while, we’re not really sorry for what we did. This faulty theology is prevalent in the church today. We like to believe it works this way, but it doesn’t. Scripture simply doesn't support that. If you put Eph 2:8 in context, the verses before it say: As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, 2 in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. 3 All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature and following its desires and thoughts. Eph 2:1–3. Paul says: “This is how you USED TO live before you were saved.” Then he says: Eph 2:8 For it is by grace you have been saved Do our actions reflect an abuse of God’s perfect grace?
