1 Corinthians 15:34

Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God

 

Awake (eknepho) – to return to one’s self from drunkenness (the drunkenness of condemnation…this is not who you really are – you are the righteousness of God in Christ (2 Cor 5:21))

 

*Righteousness – God’s righteousness (through Christ) – not self righteousness (trying to keep the law)

*When you awake to righteousness you do not have to try not to sin, you will SIN NOT!  Holiness is a fruit of righteousness conscience.  Sin is a fruit of condemnation.

*Knowledge of God –  The knowledge of Jesus and what was accomplished through his death, burial, and resurrection.
