Abounding Grace and Sin

“Abounding grace, rightly understood, will not make you sin; it will not relax morality or make inconsistency a trifle.  It will magnify sin and enhance its evil in your eyes.  Your footing or “standing” in grace (Rom. 5:2) will be the strongest, as well as most blessed, that you can every occupy.  If your feed be “shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace” (Eph. 6:15), you will be able to “stand” and to “withstand”; not otherwise.”
Horatius Bonar (Follow the Lamb)
