"Filled, Full Of, They Are..."
“Filled, Full Of, They Are…”
We saw yesterday that because “they” chose not to acknowledge God any longer, the Lord gave them over to a depraved mind…to do those things which are not proper.
Because of this “they” were…”filled”, “full of”, “they are”…
And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper,
being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips,
slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents,
without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful;
and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.
The are filled with all…
They are full of…
They are (they have become..)…
- haters of God
- inventors of evil
- disobedient to parents
- without understanding
They practice these things.
It is there pattern of life.
It is who they are.
They do these things.
They rejoice and give hearty approval to those who practice likewise.
Such are those in the world.
Many profess faith and gather in the organizational church.
Yet, they are not of God.
But, there is hope.
Such were some (most? all?) of us.
We have been…
Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.
The same can happen to “they”…if “they” repent, confess and call upon the name of the Lord.
