I Believe that my reading audience would be of the same opinion with this subsequent declaration; “It is appalling to have entered into salvation thinking that giving our lives to Christ could would keep us as mere men without faults; Moreover, think that when there was fault that God would be so rigid to where there was no margin for error. Paul makes it as plain as the nose on your face in his argument in Romans 5:19. He’s emphatic of these two facts that by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, on the flip side, by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous, this is such a wonderful thing to be on familiar terms with the fact that I have fallen short time after time and have been guilt, nonetheless, guilty but grace caught me.
I am certain that there are so many that will agree that there are some things where the blame has been laid on us and we were 100% wrong, guilty but grace caught us.
Paul expels a thought that can help anyone who’s willing to be transparent about their struggles with the guilt of sin, he so plainly articulates this thought in saying that “where sin abounded, grace did much more abound.” That is to say As deep as sin goes, God’s grace goes deeper. As wide as sin is, God’s grace is wider. As tall as sin is, God’s grace is taller. When sin abounded, grace super-abounded. God’s grace is greater than all of our sins. Grace Is God’s unmerited favor. The world of believers having favor in God’s sight even when we don’t deserve it.
This thought guilty but grace caught me says that even your biggest sin is no match for God because his grace is sufficient. Even at the point of your deficiency God’s grace is sufficiency. God’s Grace is sufficient enough cover all your faults even in your position of guiltiness.
