If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.”
– 1 John 8-10
The very minute you do not consider yourself to be a sinner, you better stop and check yourself. We came into this world sinning and we’ll go out the same way. We may get a handle on some of it with God’s help, but we will always need God’s strength, mercy, and forgiveness. Once we stop relying on Him our sinful nature will win.
