Romans 5:20 (NET)Now the law came in so that the transgression may increase, but where sin increased, grace multiplied all the more
When the law came, sinning was now double transgression. The one was violating the principle of life, and the other was disobedience to the commands of God. Because of the law, sin became even more sinful and offensive(a double violation). Thus, the grace that made us free from the filthiness and consequences of sin had to much more abound.
Grace is like the detergent and effort put in to wash a filthy vessel. Grace is God’s effort to wash away the filth of our sins and make us clean and justified to stand before Him and share in His divine nature. You would agree with me that the dirtier something is, there would be more detergent and work required to clean it. Where sin increased, grace multiplied much more.
Go into today remembering that it cost God the life of His only begotten son to clean you of your sins. Don’t take this sacrifice for granted by willfully walking in the flesh(sin). Do everything possible to flee the path of sin. Seek help if the need be.
Prayer: Lord, thank you for your grace that gives me access to your divine life. Please help me walk worthy of this grace and please you in all respects(see Eph 4:1, Col 1:10, 1 Thess 2:21).
