Does grace overlook it when we sin? No, it doesn’t. The Scripture says;
“…Whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of hell fire.” Matthew 5:22 NKJV
And again, in James it says;
“Whoever keeps the whole Law but stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it”. James 2:10 Berean Study Bible (More on these verses in my next post, because I know how these verses are easily labeled ‘Old Testament in nature’).
With that said, we need to understand the position of grace in relation to sin, so, let’s look at a profound verse in Romans:
I need to apologize for posting this a day later than I usually do. There were many factors militating against my putting it up on Friday (yesterday). But thank God those factors have been overcome today.
In my last post, REDEMPTION – A Second Chance, I told you about the experience of heaven in Joshua Harris’ I Kissed Dating Goodbye. My prayer for you still holds true even today; that you find faith in the Lord Jesus today for a second chance.

Brad Lauwers was in the locker room, showering after a gruelling football workout, when he first noticed the lump. He bent down and fingered his ankle gently, cupping his hand around the swelling. He felt no pain or stiffness. “Perhaps it’s just some fluid,” he thought. “It will disappear in a few days.”
But the swelling didn’t disappear, and a month later Brad lay in a hospital bed awaiting amputation of his left leg. The lump turned out to be a malignant tumor that was sending runners out in several directions in Brad’s foot. The next day a surgeon removed Brad’s leg just inches below the knee.
