[[Rom 5:20]] KJV* Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:
Many find it hard to accept the grace of God. They are too used to the Law that grace almost sounds like an abuse. The reason for this is because the Law was first introduced before grace. The Law demands but the grace supplies. For example, the Law demands righteousness from us. Notwithstanding, under grace, we are supplied with righteousness. Because of grace, we didn’t have to be righteous, rather, we are made the very righteousness of God in Christ.
You see, because people have so much been used to being demanded from, they find it hard to receive the supply. The Law trains one to always work. The Law is works. So when people get used to working all the time, they think there is a problem when they must rest (grace) and still obtain even better results. But that is the beauty of grace: receiving better things without works. Hallelujah!
Our maiden text says, “Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound.” The Law multiplied and amplified sin. It made sin abound. But grace also amplifies and multiplies God’s love and forgiveness. So where sin is amplified, grace super abounds. Glory to God.
God doesn’t have a problem with sin; you do. As far as God is concerned, sin is destroyed in Christ *(Rom 1:3). Now grace super abounds. No amount of sin can overshadow God’s grace. Hallelujah! Now grace is here. Stop trying to meet up to the demands of the Law, and receive the free supplies of grace. You can live right without struggles! Grace super abounds!!!
Father I thank you for your free gift of grace. I receive it in Jesus’ name. I refrain from my works and depend on the supplies of your grace, walking in the accomplishments of Christ for me and triumphing over all things in Jesus’ name.
