The Sinless Spiritual Identity of Every Christian (In 100 Words)

1 John 3:9 tells us, "Everyone who has been born of God does not commit sin, because God’s seed resides in him, and thus he is not able to sin, because he has been born of God." I've studied & "does not commit sin" can be translated as "does not produce sin" or "does not bring forth sin." Why is this so? Because we are born of God. As Jesus talks about in John 3, our flesh is not born of God but our spirit is. God identifies us by our "new creation" which is our reborn spirit. That spirit cannot sin.
