No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in them; they cannot go on sinning, because they have been born of God.

– 1 John 3:9 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org, Author of Making Sense of the Bible

The life that is changed by God has a new posture toward sin. What was once a normal pattern now becomes a source of discomfort, because the Spirit of God is bringing conviction to our heart and changing us. So the conviction of sin is not to bring shame, but change, because God’s Spirit is faithfully guiding us from our old nature to our new reality. We are not alone in our struggle against sin—God Himself is faithfully leading us.
