Yesterday I left home to work today in Leadore, Idaho. It is a tiny town of 105 people in the mountains of Eastern Idaho. On the way I listened to a CD from the evangelist I like so well–Graham Cook. The topic was relationships–the relationship between myself and God. Graham Cook points out that the new nature given to us when we accept Christ as our Lord and Savior replaces our old sin nature. I’ve not heard this explained the way he does. The key for me is that the old nature is now gone. However, the habits of sinfulness will still be present if we allow them to come into the new nature. Scripture in the New Testament is filled with guidance about living in the new nature, but I’ve always applied it to the old nature rather than learning my new one. I don’t know if this is awakening for you, but if so, I’d sure like to hear from anyone about how they are doing at living in the new nature. There is much for all of us to learn here.
I was actually going to skip this blog today, but I couldn’t get this topic off my mind so I’m planting the seed for responses. Let me know your thoughts and what you’ve been learning here.
