What Grace Also Teaches

Grace also teaches us to say no to worldly passions, the ordinate desire for and preoccupation with the things of this life, such as progressions, prestige, pleasure or power.  Worldly passion is the opposite of the attitude Paul urged on us when he wrote, “Those who use the things of the world [should live] as if not engrossed in them.  For this world in its present form is passing away” (I Corinthians 7:31).
