What To Renounce

My Utmost His Highest

"We have renounced the hidden things of shame . . ." (2 Corinthians 4:2)

Have you “renounced the hidden things of shame” in your life — the things that your sense of honor or pride will not allow to come into the light? You can easily hide them. Is there a thought in your heart about anyone that you would not like to be brought into the light? Then renounce it as soon as it comes to mind — renounce everything in its entirety until there is no hidden dishonesty or craftiness about you at all. Envy, jealousy, and strife don’t necessarily arise from your old nature of sin, but from the flesh which was used for these kinds of things in the past (see Romans 6:19 and 1 Peter 4:1-3). . . God has called you to a higher standard. Never dull your sense of being your utmost for His highest — your best for His glory. (read more) (purchase)
