We are Not Forgiven to Go and Sin

"God holds all people accountable for their sins. He hates idolatry, oppression, and violence marked by pretense of worship."


Our God is a perfectly just God; Deut. 32:4 He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgement: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he. In order to be just God holds everyone accountable for their sins. The way we account for our sins is through forgiveness and repentance; Ezekiel 14:6 Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord God; Repent, and turn yourselves from your idols; and turn away your faces from all your abominations.


Often times we become content with our salvation and treat forgiveness like it is an entitled luxury rather than a blessing. We sin, ask for forgiveness, continue walking in sin, rinse and repeat. The book of Isaiah begins with a stern rebuke of Israel for this very act. In Chapter 1 verses 11-15 Israel is chastised for the abundance of vain sacrifices and oblations. God tells them He is sick and full of them. So much so that they mean nothing to him. Furthermore, he tells them they will reach their hands towards him but he will turn his face from them, and that they will call out for him but he will not hear them.


It is vital for us to remember that forgiveness is not a right, but instead it is a privilege through His grace and adoption that should be honored and fearfully respected with true repentance.
