I Will Worship My Sin No Longer!

18 Oct

I will not worship my sin any longer.  For too long sin has required my attention, my energy and my sin management.  In fact it has demanded that my very identity be established by it… (e.g. if I sin then I must not be righteous).  I have naively and gullibly bowed the knee too long to a liar and a thief.  No more worship of my sin!!  My identity will be established upon what Jesus did for me and what he declares over me… I am righteous, perfect, complete, ascended, etc…  I will worship Him only!!

    Amen! Great thoughts here. I’m with you. And let’s stop being sinners by faith and just be the righteousness of God in Christ by faith instead.

      Mel, You are SO right. We’ve had more faith in our sin to identify us as sinners than Jesus’ power to declare us righteous… as if Jesus’ power and authority was no match for our sin. We gave our ‘powerful’ sin full ability to determine our identity. What a staggering thought! How despicable to think that we were ‘worshiping’ the wrong god.

      But thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph! O this is good… so liberating.

        Amen. I finally figured it out. I like the freedom Jesus gives better than Satan’s bondage. He can have it. I don’t need it anymore… 🙂

        Again, great post, brother.
