Romans 6:1 (NLT)
1 Well then, should we keep on sinning so that God can show us more and more of his wonderful grace?

The apostle asks an important question to Christians which he gives a reply, �Of course not! Since we have died to sin, how can we continue to live in it? Or have you forgotten that when we were joined with Christ Jesus in baptism, we joined him in his death? For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives.� God�s grace is not an excuse to sin, but instead a reason to live.

Switzerland has a toll system that requires you to pay an upfront annual fee. Once you pay your fee a sticker is issued for your windshield that is good for the year. Traditionally, traffic police give motorists the whole month of January to purchase the sticker. There is no penalty for driving without it during that month�it is a month of grace. But when the first days of February come, expect to see the traffic police on the autoroute exit ramps checking for cars without the sticker. No more excuses are accepted; no more time is given. The grace period has ended.

God always provides us a time of grace, but eventually there are consequences for our actions. We should not take advantage of God�s grace for our own selfish purposes. Instead we should take the opportunity to make a correction in our life that aligns us with God�s will.
