Balanced Thinking About Our Remaining Sin - Nathan Rages
"My little children,
I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin.
And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous;" 1John 2:1
As Christians, we have no greater challenge than dealing with our own remaining sin. In this one verse, the Apostle John provides balanced instruction on the matter. His two statements provide "guardrails" to protect us from two "ditches" into which we may easily slide: (1) being too lenient about our sin or (2) despairing after we have sinned.
