RIGHTEOUS NATURE

 
Audio Version with Audio Bible: http://bit.ly/29Qnb8N

2 Cor 5:17 [KJV]
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.


Yetunde realized that her new nature as a child of God was really different from what it used to be. Unlike before, she now had a true nature of righteousness, and it was now a real struggle for her to walk outside this nature. It was a real struggle because she knew she was violating something precious each time she committed a sin.

For the unbeliever, the opposite is the case. It is a real burden when he tries to walk in righteousness. He is comfortable living in sin, while a believer is uncomfortable living in sin.

The sign that you have been fathered by God is that you no longer have a sinful nature. This doesn’t mean that you may not fall into sin. This means that if you fall into sin, you are not comfortable until you are forgiven and cleansed from the unrighteousness (weakness) that produced it.

One reason why many Christians continually violate their new righteous nature is that even though they have a regenerated spirit, they still have an un-renewed mind. They have not changed their way of thinking, but still have the same thought processes as when they were not yet saved. This is why discipleship is very important. Its purpose is to help change the mindset of people to conform to that of Christ.

Go into today remembering that you are a new creation. Ask the Lord to help you renew your mind to this reality.
