If I resist the grace of God can I lose my salvation? – Audio
We all resist the grace of God daily in our lives. We think we can live this life on our own (comma) or God is interested in the ledger of good deeds and righteous works I am keeping and considers what I can do (comma) or not do in order to impress Him.
We are the ones Peter speaks of in 2 Peter 1:5-9.
For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, 6 and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with stead-fastness, and steadfastness with godliness, 7 and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. 8 For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowl-edge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 For whoever lacks these qualities is so nearsighted that he is blind, having forgot-ten that he was cleansed from his former sins. (ESV, my emphasis)
In our own self-sufficiency and self-reliance we are not look-ing for the grace of God. In our pride and grace-averse (grace averse is used below) hearts, we work to keep logs and account books of the works we do and good deeds we do, believing that we must still do more to impress God, rather than realizing Christ said(comma) “It is finished” (John 19:30).
