..view ourselves as already arrived.. sinless and without the ability to ever blow it again via sins of omission or commission. Be genuinely humble. Beware you who think you stand in perfection lest ya bite the dust real hard and come up with gravel jammed in your cheeks.
"The greatest of faults, I should say, is to be conscious of none." ~ Thomas Carlyle
The Apostle John said, "But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us" (1 John 1:7-10, nkjv).
