Trophy of Grace

I recently started listening to a Christian radio station called wayfm. A few weeks ago, the DJ gave a short sermon on being a trophy of grace versus being a leader of moral righteousness. He maintained he was not an example of righteousness, but only a trophy of grace.

His error. These aren’t antonyms they are synonyms. To be a trophy of grace, to be saved, you must of necessity be righteous.

What does the Bible say: 1 John 3:6-8 KJV Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him. [7] Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. [8] He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

To be a trophy of grace we must have a part in God. To have that part we must not sin. Not sinning makes us an example of righteousness.

Luke 21:36 KJV
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and stand before the Son of man.
