No matter what it is, man will abuse it. Drugs, food, other people (physically, emotionally, and spiritually), worldly possessions (from automobiles to shoes), money, power and influence, the earth, the Law of God, the grace of God, spiritual gifts, the Bible, the prophets of God, the Son of God, the Holy Spirit. Whether things of the world or things of God, the result is the same...in the heart of unregenerate man (Gen 6:5, Jer 17:9, Rom 8:6-8).
But the man who has learned Christ puts off that old man and puts on the new man (Eph 4:17-32, Col 3:1-16) by the washing of regeneration (Titus 3:3-7). Thank you Jesus for delivering us from that body of death (Rom 7:24-25) and for sending us to preach the gospel of grace (Matt 28:18-20, John 20:21)! Lord, help us to not abuse our authority in the gospel (1 Cor 9:18)!
