Sins committed by a believer of Christ for Salvation will not result in loss of Salvation. That stated, should we just sin all we want so that God’s grace abounds? No. We still have consequences for our sins and they are not good at all.
Damnation in hell is not a consequence of sin for a believer on Christ’s atonement but we should be transformed during our life as a believer. We renew our mind by the Word of God, guided by the Holy Spirit.
》》 First… confessing sins and asking for forgiveness for sins are not the same thing.
Confessing is agreeing with God that we sinned. All a person’s sins were forgiven on that cross because Jesus did not make a partial payment for just the sins of those who would believe; He paid for all sins of every person!
“2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and NOT FOR OURS ONLY, but also for the sins of THE WHOLE WORLD.” (1 John 2:2 KJV)
This ‘once for all’ payment of all sins (Hebrews 10:10) is given to us all as a GIFT of God’s grace and can be accepted or rejected because God gives us free will to decide. He asks us… ‘Here is a free unmerited GIFT. It is complete forgiveness of your life sins and makes you the righteousness of God, in Christ.’
….If the gift is rejected, the payment is not placed on the account of a person’s sin debt and they will one day pay for their sin debt themselves in a place called hell.
….If they accept the gift payment by belief on Christ and His once for all sacrifice for our sins on the cross (John 3:14-18, Hebrews 10:10) then they are freed of the debt ENTIRELY. All sins we commit are future from the cross, sins we comit after Salvation as well and all were paid for by Jesus’ ONCE FOR ALL payment , if we accept the GIFT of Salvation.
Jesus paid for ALL SINS FROM ALL TIME..past/present/future.
On that cross Jesus cried out.. IT IS FINISHED. In the Greek that was penned it is an accounting term meaning A DEBT PAID IN FULL.
Salvation is a gift to be received (Eph 2:8-9) by BELIEF ON CHRIST (John 3:14-18, 1 Cor. 15:1-4) not something we work to achieve nor keep. By believing on Christ….any sins comitted both before and after the moment of Salvation are already judged and paid in full.
From the moment of belief on Christ we are SEALED by the Holy Spirit:
” 13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also AFTER THAT YE BELIEVED, YE WERE SEALED with that holy Spirit of promise, 14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.” (Eph 1:13-14 KJV)
Notice it is past tense and a believer was sealed from the moment of belief. That does not mean we have no consequences for sinning!!! There could be severe consequences such as physical death even and loss of eternal rewards. But damnation in hell for sins Christ already paid for in our place? Not for the believer.
“4 According as HE HATH CHOSEN US IN HIM BEFORE the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and WITHOUT BLAME before him in love:” (Ephesians 1:4 KJV)
God knew every sin we would commit from the foundation of the world..yet He willing became flesh and paid for our sins anyway. Amazing love. Abounding grace!!
