SINNING LESS AND LESS
1ST JOHN 3:4-6
4Everyone who sins breaks the law; in fact, sin is lawlessness 5But you know that he appeared so that he might take away our sins. And in him is no sin. 6No one who lives in him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen him or known him.
3: 4-9 There is a difference between committing a sin and continuing to sin. Even the most faithful believers sin, but they do not cherish a particular sin or continually choose to commit it. A believer who commits a sin can repent, confess it, and find forgiveness. A person who deliberately continues to sin, by contrast, is not sorry for what he or she is doing and does not repent of it. Thus, this person never confesses their sin and never receives forgiveness. Such a person stands in opposition to God, regardless of his or her religious claims. Tyndale. NIV Life Application Study Bible
The Holy Spirits conviction upon us when we sin is a true sign of our Christianity at work within us. When we honestly feel bad and repent and seek God’s forgiveness when we sin, the Holy Spirit is doing a work inside of us that we might sin less and less. ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS letting the Holy Spirit guide us into a life of less sin.
