The grace we receive through Christ’s sacrifice is never to be discounted or taken for granted. We all sin no matter how hard we try or how good we think we are, but salvation from eternal death is real through God’s grace. It is important to understand what 1 Corinthians 6:12 says, “Everything is permissible for me,”—but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is permissible for me”—but I will not be mastered by anything. Just because we are saved through grace, does not mean we are free from the consequences of making bad decisions. A righteous life will always be the most rewarding on this earth.
