The one who is sober can comment both to drunkenness and sobriety.
The one who is drunk is in no position to comment on either drunkenness or sobriety
I appeal to you therefore, brothers,by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
The one who is in the Word and constantly seeking to be in Christ can comment on depravity and righteousness.
The one who is out of sync with God is in no position to comment on either depravity or righteousness.
The more we dwell on Jesus, the more we anchor and secure ourselves in Him and the reality of our desperate need for Him and desire to conform ourselves to His image through repentance, belief, faith and faithfulness.
The less we dwell on Jesus, the less secure we feel in our relationship to God as we lose sight of our depravity in becoming more and more depraved and as such desire less and lewss to do anything for, through or to Him in the process.
This is a true principle I have observed in my life as described by Pastor Jeff Dodge this past weekend in his exposition of Romans 12:1-2.
