Grace Matter: Excerpt from, "Life Abhors A Vacuum"
"Whoever abides in Him does not sin. Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him (1 John 3:6)." A person doesn’t sin because sin is too powerful. One doesn’t sin because the world is too strong. One doesn’t even sin because they are too weak. If 1 John 3:6 means anything, it means that we sin because we are living in a vacuum. There is something missing. There is something that we have not seen about our Lord, or there is something that we do not know about the Lord. What we don’t know is corrupting us. So now, when I sin, I repent first of all but then I sincerely ask the Lord, “What am I not seeing; what is lacking in my knowledge of You that allowed this corruption in?” This simple concept has helped me tremendously. I do not need more knowledge of sin or of the enemy of my soul to overcome; I need a complete knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
