For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace. Romans 6:14
Wow. That is a powerful statement and there is a lot in there, but I want to focus on one thing: the distinction between law and grace. They are not the same thing. In fact, they are totally different and the Bible regularly explains grace by contrasting it with law, like in the verse above. Some of you might be saying, duh, of course they are not the same thing. But I want to tell you that there are millions of Christians across the world who believe that law and grace are the same thing. And there are millions more who mix the two to some degree. Is it possible that you could be mixing law and grace as well?
