1 John 3:6

"Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him."
1 John 3:6

I think this is interesting, and gives us something to strive for. It's telling us that if we sin, we don't really know God. Something about knowing him, walking with him, seeing him... (not necessarily physically for any of those) something there inspires you to change, to be better... to know that sin is unacceptable. So, if we're still sinning, a big part of the problem is that we don't know God well enough. We get to know him through the scriptures, and through prayer. Perhaps today, if we are still struggling with sin and haven't perfected ourselves yet... :) ... Perhaps we should get on our knees and talk to him about it. Maybe we should sit down with the scriptures and read about him. I kind of like that idea of learning making you sin-resistant. Today, instead of obsessing about what we've done wrong, let's read about the perfect example, and try to get in tune with it.
