For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace. – Romans 6:14
God is not looking to punish you. Jesus took the punishment for all your sins at the Cross. You are no longer under the dos and don’ts of before the Cross.
Now you are under grace. Grace is not a concept. It is the Person of Jesus Christ. We are now in Him like a letter inside an envelope.
We are free to develop a relationship with our Savior. There is nothing standing in our way.
The more you spend time with Him, the more of His grace–His unmerited favor–flows in your life. Both to you and others.
