1 John 1:10 KJV — If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
Reflection on God’s Word for Today - 31 Jan 2024
Many go about preaching some erroneous theology that those who are born again cannot sin. That's such a very big lie as the scripture today points out. And when people do this, they are contradicting God, which in itself is sin. It is important that being born again in the spirit does not confer perfection in the body. We are still liable to do those things that God frowns upon, but now we have the Holy Spirit who will help us to resist and instead conform to Jehovah's will, if we submit ourselves to the Holy Spirit’s prompting. The good news is that, when we succumb to sin, God is quick to forgive us if we are remorseful, repentant and ask Him for forgiveness. And we have Jesus Christ advocating on our behalf, hence we are assured of being forgiven. Otherwise why would you need an advocate if you cannot sin because you are born again? So, don't be deceived by any false theology. Flee from any appearance of evil.
Pray: Lord Jesus, thank You for being my advocate before the Father, please help me to steer away from sinning. #Mok
