A Child of God does NOT SIN

How can you know that a person is a child of God? A child of God does not sin. As we read in 1 John 3:10 “By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother.” Now if a person would say that they have never sinned in their life then they are lying BUT if you have become a child of God THEN you’ve STOP SINNING. As we read in 1 John 1:8-10 “He says: If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us.” We have all sinned and we come short of the glory of God. But if we repent and turn away from sin then Jesus forgives us and He sets us free from the bondage of sin because he who sins is a slave of sin. And if you have met Jesus and you have become a child of God, you are free from the bondage of sin and you sin no more. As Paul also wrote in 1 Corinthians 6:9- “He says or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the Kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And SUCH WERE SOME OF YOU; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.”
We WERE all sinners BUT if we have REPENTED and become children of God we are NOT SINNERS ANYMORE. We have become OBEDIENT from the heart. We read in Romans 6:17-18 Paul says “but thanks be to God that though you WERE SLAVES OF SIN, you BECAME OBEDIENT FROM THE HEART to that form of teaching to which you were committed, and having been FREED FROM SIN, you BECAME SLAVES OF RIGHTEOUSNESS.” Dear friend, if you are a child of God and you are not a slave to sin anymore, you are free to serve God. You are free of your addictions and your sins and now you are PURE and you walk in RIGHTEOUSNESS. You are a child of God. YOU SIN NO MORE. The difference between a child of God and a child of the devil is A CHILD OF GOD DOES NOT SIN.
May Jesus bless you.
