Even for Just a Moment

No one who lives in him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen him or known him. 1 John 3:6

Without an understanding of God's grace, certain verses can sure cause a lot of doubt. John's words seem to suggest that if we sin, we are not in Him - that maybe we aren't really saved. Even as Christians, sin will continue to be a struggle. What are we to do?

In truth, when we sin, we are not in Him. We have chosen to step outside of Him - outside of His protection - even for just a moment.

Yet there is hope.

By His grace, He is ALWAYS in us. That's the key! That is how we know we are saved. He will never leave us or forsake us - even for just a moment.

Lord, thank You for choosing me. There are times that I don't choose You, but my choice can never change You. I am made clean and holy by Your action alone - not mine. Help me to see You in all things, for when I see You, sin isn't even a choice.
