Accepting the Lord's Grace says I believe I have received the unmerited Favor of the Lord and I can now choose to live according to the law of God, therefore sin hath no more dominion over me or I can say it does not determine my destiny. It's my Love for God and His Word that moves me away from sin and Closer to Him, by choice and not by command. I choose to obey His commandments not so I can be saved but so He can see how much I Love Him. He has my heart, and not just my head. Grace Through Faith, it IS the Gift of God, and I thank Him by Living a Life He can be Proud of.
14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.
16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey, whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness.
