As Christians, we are saved by God’s grace, not by our good works, and stay on in this journey of faith because of His grace.
- it (grace) leads to transformed lives.
- it (grace) is not misused as a licence for sinning.
- personal responsibility is being emphasised to the same degree as grace.
This short account has deep theological implications. The recipient of God’s love and mercy ought to show evidence of change in thought and behavior. In other words, the sinner has to repent.
