Greetings brothers and sisters in Christ.
According to a parable few weeks back, the late vineyard workers receive the same amount of payment from their generous master as those who work full time, and God has told the on-time workers not to be envious of those who are late.
God loves us and he always forgives us. Even if we sin again and again he will forgive us too. My questions is as follows: what is the point of refraining away from sin if we know we will always be forgiven each time we commit a sin and repent? Lets take fornication as an example. If each fornicator is forgiven everytime he/she commits it and repent later, how is he/she different from someone who actually tried his/her best to avoid the sin and heed God’s words?
According to the parable above, there’s no rewards or extra blessing for those who avoid the sin, and in fact they receive the same amount of generosity of those who commit the sin. So my question again: Whats the point of refraining from the sin if we know we will be forgiven anyways when we repent versus trying our best to refrain from sinning?
Thank you and may God bless you.
