You say you love Him?
Then you will keep His commandments and love His Words to the exclusion of all else.

A sinner – one who chooses to sin – is not keeping His commandments but rather choosing to disobey them regularly.
A sinner loves themselves far and above the Word of God, which is why they daily make the choice to rebel against and disobey as a way of life.
A sinner loves the pleasures of their sinfulness mountains above their love for God, and this is EVIDENCED by their iniquity.
Rather, a sinner is a friend and child of the devil, not Jesus Christ, for it is the devils works they do, not God’s.
✤ 1 John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

✤ 1 Corinthians 15:34 Awake to righteousness, and sin not…
✤ 1 John 3:9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
