This is one of those verses that people do not like. Especially the first sentence. Well, as individuals, we are responsible to God for our own sin. Blaming others for our wrongful doing is very easy, but how about a little self evaluation??? We need to admit our sins and repent from them! God’s grace is ever sufficient but ultimately, we need to own up to our sin and pursue righteous living.
Even if you are a Pastor’s kid, your parents’ salvation is THEIR salvation. There is no free ticket to heaven just because your mother or father is righteous. Each person has to work out their own salvation!!!
