Daily Service: Returning to Old Ways

 Do you know that while you are still walking around in your flesh there is a tendency to return to your former habits and haunts?

Proverbs 26:11-12 NKJV As a dog returns to his own vomit, so a fool repeats his folly. Do you see a man wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him.

.Luke 11:24-26 NKJV “When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when he comes, he finds it swept and put in order. Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first.”

 “I affirm, brethren, by the boasting in you which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily” (1 Corinthians 15:31, NASB).

1-corinthians-15-31

Our fallen human nature is completely and utterly selfish. We are born wanting all our needs met (right now!) and if we are not careful, we will continue living like self-centered, immature children. But as Christians, there is a higher call to put off our old nature and put on the “new man” (Ephesians 4:22-24, Colossians 3:9-11).

The apostle Paul’s exhortation to the believers in Corinth gives us a glimpse of his aim in life:

“ I affirm, brethren, by the boasting in you which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily” (1 Corinthians 15:31, NASB).
