Whoever abides in Him does not sin. Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him. (1 John 3:6)
God’s standard for His children is the highest standard possible. Perfect conformity to the will and law of God. God’s people must be without sin. It can be discouraging, for very often we fail to reach such a high standard. Shall we complain that the standard is too high? No, for would we want anything else?
“As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the LORD is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.” (Psalm 18:30)
