To Fall From Grace.

As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him ... Colossians 2:6

Most believers understand that their salvation is by grace through faith, yet to sustain their relationship with God and mature spiritually they have to strive to keep the law. However, the message of Colossians 2:6 is that our living life after salvation by Grace and maintaining our relationship with God is by His Grace through faith .

Therefore, why is it that many believers still live this spiritual life has described by Paul’s penetrating question to the Galatian believers:

Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh? Galatians 3:3

Paul’s concern for the Galatian believers was because some among them were teaching believers to live by keeping the law...not by walking in the Spirit. Paul taught the Galatians just the opposite...they were to walk in the Spirit without seeking to keep the law.

In Galatians 5:4 Paul describes in a different way the Galatians’ change from walking in the Spirit. He writes:

... you have fallen from grace.

Rejecting the life of walking in the Spirit is to fall from grace. This does not mean losing our salvation. It does mean missing out on the powerful, peaceful, fulfilling, unifying and abundant life that Jesus makes possible by His Awesome Grace.

Believers today who have reduced their walk with God to nothing more than the keeping the do's and don'ts of religious rituals and commands, have fallen from Grace.

A believer does not fall from grace by sinning sins that religious people name as sin...A believer falls from grace by intermingling self-effort law keeping endouvers with grace living because "grace plus" anything or "grace butting" is not grace at all.
