Sin Not

Key Verse

“My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous” (1 John 2:1).

Text — 1 John 2:1-5


Before the advent of the social media and even electronic mails, messages or letters were written and posted to the recipients using the postal services.  God has also written and sent His message and demands to the world. Though we live in a generation in which everyone does what he feels good to him, God has a standard for His children who will live with Him eternally in glory.

In this passage we see that God does not expect any of His children to live in sin under any guise for that is the reason His Son was manifested. At the point of salvation, the Lord gives the power and His nature to His sons and daughters. “Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.” This is the essence of the sacrifice of Jesus – to make us saints.  If you have backslidden from the truth, you need to go back to God in genuine repentance for forgiveness.


God has a standard for His children


God’s children must live in holiness.

Prayer for today

Dear God, Keep me pure in this sinful world in Jesus’ name.
