Philippians 3:16 “Only let us live up to what we have already attained.”
When I was growing up, my Mom used to have this saying she’d tell me after I did something that I knew I shouldn’t have done.
Mom would always say, “Jonathan, you know better.”
This verse kinda says the same thing…
I have no excuse.
I am accountable for the knowledge that I have.
If I know something, yet ignore the application of it, I’m being disobedient.
I think it’s a problem in today’s culture…
To know the right stuff, yet fail to apply the right actions.
I’ll be held accountable for what I know and what I do with it.
So will you.
Let’s live up to what we know.
Let’s live up to the calling we’ve attained.
