v. 9- “No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in them…” We are who we are- looks-wise, personality-wise- because of the seeds of our parents. We carry part of them in us. When we become- if we truly become children of God- then His seed is in us. And that seed is the desire to avoid sin. It is impossible to have the seed of God within us and have the desire to keep sinning. Don’t get me wrong, children of God still sin, but it is something we do not desire, and in fact when it happens, we are abhorred by it.
