Any Christian who reverts to seeking to be justified by law has fallen from grace. If a believer today is deceived into believing salvation is assured through works, they will cease to experience God’s grace until they regain their trust in the righteousness and faithfulness of God.
In fact, if any believer joins any group which teaches that we must produce good works in order to maintain our salvation, they will cease to experience grace. Even the linking of assurance to the quality of our lives can lead a believer to fall from a daily experience of grace.
Falling from grace is a real problem today. May we proclaim the gospel and assurance clearly so that we can help people begin anew or continue to experience God’s grace in their daily lives.
