No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God 1 John 3:9

Here is a scary promise: No one born of God practices sin. The Greek tense refers to continual action, and the verse is saying that people who continue a lifestyle of sin don’t have God’s “seed” in them. But the meaning goes deeper, because not even pagans sin every moment. Many Christians practice “sin management” rather than growth in Christ. As followers of Christ, our testimony should be, “I’m not perfect yet, but that’s my goal!” Focusing on the goal and following spiritual disciplines is positive, dynamic forward movement, rather than the stodgy, stultifying labor of “sin management.”
