SPECIAL THOUGHT FOR TODAY
GOD’S EXPECTATION OF ME
[1John 3:6-10 (Amp)- No one who abides in Him [who lives and remains in communion with and in obedience to Him- deliberately, knowingly, and habitually] commits [practices] sin. No one who [habitually] sins has either seen or known Him [recognized, perceived, or understood Him, or has had an experiential acquaintance with Him].
The potency of grace to speak on your behalf is reduced when you continue in sin. A child of God does not practice sin. This can be illustrated with the way a sheep and a pig would relate with mud: A sheep falls into mud but struggles out. A pig falls into mud and enjoys it. The sheep is likened to the child of God, the pig is likened to a sinner, and mud is likened to sin. Whereas a sinner enjoys sin, a child of God does not enjoy sin. Only those that practice holiness will see the Lord. Meditate on this today.
