FALLING FROM GRACE IS NOT TERMINAL – Ray E Horton
A friend posed the question, “Can the saint break fellowship with Christ Jesus?” Another friend responded: “There is only one way that I know of: Galatians 5. That says basically that if you depend on the law, you have fallen from grace.
“Let’s take a look:
“I testify again to every man who is circumcised that he is obligated to keep the whole law. You have been cut off from Christ, whoever of you are justified by law; you have fallen from grace” (Galatians 5:3-4).
It says that depending on the law cuts one off from Christ.
Sin does not break fellowship on His end. But it can on ours, if we don’t understand our relationship with Christ
Yes, staying with the law, which is falling from grace, is rejecting the Lord’s provision. As I see it, sin does not break fellowship on His end. But it can on ours, if we don’t understand our relationship with Christ.
That ignorance of God’s grace leads one to turn away in guilt rather than to Him, receiving the forgiveness purchased for us at the Cross. That is the reason for repentance, not to fulfill some law requirement, but to get back on track, and the Lord is waiting with open arms.
