Come to your senses!

Posted by in Scripture

1 Corinthians 15:33-34
 Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.”   Come back to your senses as you ought, and stop sinning; for there are some who are ignorant of God—I say this to your shame.

There are some people that just can’t get enough glory in their own sin… I tend to naturally avoid them but sometimes I need to be reminded.

Is taking “glory in our past sins” a sin?

What I am reminded with a quick look at scripture is that God forgets the sin.  (Isaiah 43:25) but why is it such a fight for US to stop living in the past?

In Philippians, Paul says that he forgets the past and presses on to the prize of Christ Jesus.  In Isaiah 43:18-19 again we are taught to “remember not the former things”   In Ephesians 4:32 tells us to put all these things away from us.

I guess the bottom line is Soli Deo gloria!

NOTE TO SELF : Telling the testimony of God’s gift of the Gospel in your life should give glory to Him not to us.
