Yes, Christians sin. But when a Christian sins, there’s something that’s very . . . strange about it. It’s out of character. It’s not living according to how they are. It’s not being true to themselves.
When a Christian sins its like a big Grizzly Bear riding a tricycle. You can teach one to do it, sure. But as you watch it happen you just know, “Man, you were made for more than this.”
So it is with Christians when they sin. Sure, it can happen, and it does. But when it does, I wonder if God is thinking, “I redeemed you for more than this.”
After all, “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. Old things have passed away. Behold, all things have become new” (2 Cor 5:17).
