Once we have received the favor of GOD through salvation, does it matter how we behave? After receiving God’s gracious salvation, we are not to continue action in ways that do not please him. We are to instead walk in the newness of life and consider ourselves dead to sin.
God’s divine grace frees us so that we are no longer slaves to sin. We are not just rescued from its penalties. Because we know our heavenly Father through the scriptures, we can live in a manner that honors Him and produces lasting fruit.
How well do you know GOD? Pleasing Him requires learning to think the way He does, this means His word must be a vital part of your life. It also necessitates choosing His way to live over your own. Although this may seem like a costly way to live, the outcome is worth every sacrifice.
