What might be God's sovereign purpose in allowing regenerated (born again) Christian's to sin? I have been humbled many times for sinning with pride. I wonder why. My thoughts are: To show God's Glory in giving us daily Grace that we need when he sovereignly chooses to give His Grace, not when we choose to do good from our own works, which makes us proud. To teach us to pray for daily grace for daily sanctification To keep us dependent on Him. To keep us from following Satan in prideful, man/self centered lives To keep us humbled in needing His daily renewing Grace All of this seems to give Glory to God rather than to man, including Christian mankind. What are other thoughts?
