Nehemiah 9:26 Nevertheless they were disobedient, and rebelled against thee, and cast thy law behind their backs, and slew thy prophets which testified against them to turn them to thee, and they wrought great provocations.
No matter how good God was to His people, they continued in their rebellion. They sinned against grace. In Romans, Paul said that God’s grace did abound more than our sin. He then asked what we would do about sinning. Would we continue in sin that grace might abound? The answer was God forbid, absolutely not. That was not the attitude of these people. What has your reaction been?
They were disobedient and rebellious. They didn’t care what the Word of God said. They despised those that preached the Word of God. Instead of listening they went out and did even more horrible sins.
What is your attitude? He loves you. He shows great grace. Do you continue in sin that grace might abound? Do you ignore the Word of God and despise His preachers? I hope not.
I hope you will let this verse work in your life and honor God! He loves you. He is good to you. Why do you persist in your sin?
