Come to your senses!
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.
