Sin is abolished only through the grace of God….

Here is a beautiful post on how the grace of God/G-d is fundamental to overcome sin. It is also important to note that man must co-operate with God’s Grace to overcome sin and that it is only through God’s Grace that our works are pleasing to God and we are not saved by works alone but by a unity of faith and works flowing from our being that free us from sin and ultimately saves us. The same can be said of faith. Hence it must be remembered that these two aspects of our relationship with God/G-d (Faith and Works) cannot be divorced from one another.
