1 John · Exegesis of Light

Can this be truly so?- Part 2

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 – 1 John 3:9 

Concluding on yesterday’s post….

The one tells us the perfection we ought to grow up into; the other tells us the how we shall rid ourselves of our present imperfection and rise up to the lofty divine standard.
Seemingly disjointed? Nay! Seamlessly joined together! Glory to God!

I say that the crux of the matter is a practical one.
How much of the full expression of righteousness are we experiencing in our walk every day?
How closer to perfection have we drawn ourselves into, since we got born again?
The secret of the “how to” lies in tapping more into the revelation of our new birth, identity and nature in Christ. Selah

Let us embrace this lofty standard to which we have been called to in Christ.
Let us aspire to make this revelation a tangible reality today. Instead of this light causing us to question the reality of our position and new birth in Christ, let it stir us up to those glorious heights it has revealed in Christ. Heights upon which we are called to walk as the sons of God – in all display of the full force of His righteousness in us! Let us press in and deeper into this revelation. Selah

Shall we not be counted among them who have awakened to this truth: “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.”

Selah
