Satan does not want believers to know what our true position is in Christ. He would rather have us
focus on our sin, our shortcomings, our failures, and anything else that takes our eyes off Jesus
Christ, the Author and Finisher of our faith.
It is understood that even born again, authentic believers sin from time to time. This is because the
sin nature has not yet been eradicated from our lives and will not be until we pass from this life to the
next. Sin should never be minimized, nor should it be winked at, believing that it does not matter to
God. It does matter, and it should matter to the authentic believer as well.
Everywhere we look, there is corruption, rebellion, and sin both inside and outside of the visible
Church, but does this mean that the invisible Church (Christ’s Bride) is also affected by it? In other
words, as the authentic believer walks with Christ, yet sins from time to time, does that sin directly
affect the purity of the invisible Church, or is the invisible Church already pure, unable to be
contaminated by sin?
Does God want us to focus on our sin, or does He have something else that we should spend our
time focusing on? Does the action of concentrating on our sin (and how terrible it can make us feel),
create within us a spiritual maturity, or a spiritual poverty, born of false piety? Are we struggling to
gain something we already possess, but are simply not aware of it yet? Satan benefits greatly by
keeping God’s children blind to the many blessings that are ours in Christ Jesus now.
