It is absolute foolishness to repeat the sins you committed in the past out of ignorance! – When we go on a tiring search for wisdom and gets success in finding it, it is imperative that we make great use of that wisdom for an impact; refusal to use that wisdom to the betterment of our lives only makes us into a dunce.
This is for you the Christian; the one who says, ” I believe in God the Father, believe the son for my Salvation and convicted for the leadings of the Holy Spirit”. Why would you continue in sin when you said at first I was an unbeliever but now I have full knowledge and believe?
The laws were given through Moses; the man of God, Christ the Son of God came to re-define and refine it for your simplest understanding, yet you still cling unto the aprons of ignorance but for how long? Allow me represent it for those that haven’t chance up on it but also refresh the memory of those who once knew.
‘For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other. So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.
For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.’ – Galatians 5:14-26
How long would you still claim not to know what is sin and that which is not? Here is the list….sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like.
But if you truly know all the things that which is sin, then, it is absolute foolishness to repeat the sins you committed in the past out of ignorance! I urge you to harbour love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. These are what qualities of a Christ in you, the hope of glory for those who are ignorant, don’t join in the ignorance when you already have full knowledge and wisdom.
Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming. As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. – 1 Peter 1:13-14
Just as had been told many, I WARN YOU,…that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. It is absolute foolishness to repeat the sins you committed in the past out of ignorance!
Dear Lord, please help me to keep in step with the Spirit. Father, help me to follow the leadings of the Spirit to exhibit Christ in my lifestyle for the Hope of Glory to be seen through me.
