1 JOHN 3:7-10 / BLOG

“Dear children, don’t let anyone deceive you about this: When people do what is right, it shows that they are righteous, even as Christ is righteous. But when people keep on sinning, it shows that they belong to the devil, who has been sinning since the beginning. But the Son of God came to destroy the works of the devil. Those who have been born into God’s family do not make a practice of sinning, because God’s life is in them. So they can’t keep on sinning, because they are children of God. So now we can tell who are children of God and who are children of the devil. Anyone who does not live righteously and does not love other believers does not belong to God.”
‭‭1 John‬ ‭3:7-10‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Salvation is no excuse for sin, because all sin is from the Devil, not God. Sin always disrupts our ”walk” with God. And, those who only walk in sin and darkness cannot claim to be children of God. Now believers are still sinners, it doesn’t lose there salvation but it’s no excuse for that behavior or action. Sin is sin. Nothing different, it’s sin. Don’t go around it and call it what it is. God will honor that. So believers are brothers and sisters in Christ and are children of God. A believer’s top goals are to fully love God and to love one’s neighbor as oneself.
