1 John 3:7-10

Have you ever gotten your Sonic drink mixed up with someone else’s? You are anticipating that first delicious sip of Cherry Limeade and instead, you get a mouthful of Diet Coke! Or worse yet, Ocean Water! What a disappointment.

From the outside, it may be hard to tell a Christ-follower from a really good person. Do not be deceived. We bear the DNA of our Heavenly Father. When you look inside a true Christian, you find authentic, deep God-righteousness, not superficial or self-serving counterfeit morality. If you look deeply, what you see is what you get.

Yes, a Christian will continue to sin. But it is not in their new nature to comfortably practice and parade a sinful lifestyle.
