Many of us know the James Bond movies over the years. He is a British spy who drives fancy cars, shoots all kinds of weapons, flies from country to country and casino to casino. He is a play boy with a gun and the support of his government to break every law in the name of upholding the law and killing bad guys.
Sadly many Christians have embraced the 007 grace where they want to live flashy lifestyles breaking every God given law, live beyond rebuke, live like the devil and still claim to be heaven bound. The grace of God has been abused by those who use the word of God to justify their evil ways, bring shame to the Lord and lead the innocent astray.
God can’t be mocked. The word of God can’t be abused. You can never break God’s law or God’s word. You will only break yourself. Submit yourself to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you. God has given you His love and grace not to be abused but rather to bless and empower you to live in victory.
SCRIPTURE READING: James 4:6-8 But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: [” God resists the proud,] [But gives grace to the humble.”] Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse hands, [you] sinners; and purify [your] hearts, [you] double-minded.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Loving father, I choose to submit to your grace on this day. I believe that your grace is to empower and support me through all things in Jesus’ name.
