How do you view sin? Do you hate it? Do you see it as a mere nuisance? Do you understand the gravity of human sin? In 1 John 3:4-10 we quickly learn that sin is massively serious! John tells us that it is a gross violation of the law of God. He explicitly links it to the purpose for Jesus' coming. He even associates it with the children of the devil. Vs. 6 reads, "No one who abides in him keeps on sinning." Do you make it a point to daily make war against sin? Many believers see their struggle with sin through unbiblical lenses. We need to be reminded of the new birth! Vs. 9 reads, "No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God's seed abides in him..." What a glorious truth! Those who have been born of God receive a new nature with new Godward desires. The Gospel not only provides forgiveness, but transformation for the believer as well, a new outlook that looks to Christ and turns from sin. Believe that! It is yours in Christ!
