Living According To The Flesh Or To The Spirit In Perspective

Based on the accounts of the Word of God, there’re just two ways people can live. The first one is according to the flesh, and the second one is according to the Spirit. The first thing to remember is that by nature we’re predisposed to live according to the flesh as a result of our fallen nature which we’ve inherited due to the fall of man. By the way, it doesn’t take that much sacrifices and efforts to live according to the flesh because all you really have to do is to follow the sinful desires found within you. To put it differently, living according to the flesh comes naturally.

What Does It Truly Mean To Be Born Again

From a biblical perspective, everyone who has come into this wicked world, came disconnected with God. That disconnection is tantamount to spiritual death. In fact, that is a direct result of the sinful nature that we’ve inherited. Keep in mind, as humans, we have two key aspects that make up our whole being: a physical aspect, and most importantly, the spiritual one. The bottom line is that life isn’t only limited to the physical one we currently have as many falsely believe. The truth is that there is another one found in Christ alone, which is infinitely better and greater than this one we have today.

A Critical Call By God To Holy Living

Holy living is something that must play an extremely important role in the life of every believer in Christ. Holiness is the tenet that creates a clear distinction between those who are in Christ and those who are not. It’s also a way of living that’s quite common all throughout the Bible with respect to those who have been earnestly seeking God. It is the condition by which we become acceptable and worthy before God. We’re commanded by God Himself to be holy according to (1 Peter 1:16).

Christ Has Promised His Disciples Another Advocate

2,000 years ago, Christ came down to this earth with a very important mission. It’s such a decisive mission that the future and hope of humanity would be determined by it. Christ’s ultimate purpose was to reconcile mankind back to God by abolishing that unbridgeable gap that had long existed between both God and mankind due to sin. Glory to God and to the Lamb, it’s a mission that was fulfilled as intended the moment Jesus gave His life on the cross as a sacrifice for humanity’s sins and came back to life 3 days later.

Christ Has Made Us Become Righteous Before God

At some point throughout mankind’s history God has given the law through His servant Moses, and it was a law that regulated every aspect of Jewish life. The initial purpose of the law was to show men how sinful they were in the sight of a holy and perfect God. The importance of the law had to do with what God wanted to bring out of it in the sense of preparing the way for His only Son to be sent in order to fulfill what the law couldn’t have done.

Both The Outward And Inward Are Important

One of the favorite buzz phrases people use whenever the subject of living a pure and holy life is brought up is “God looks on the heart.” While that is true, that does not mean that the outside is not important. The bible declares in James that our works are important because to a lost and dying world that is the only evidence of Christianity they might ever see.

Holiness Is Not A Suggestion

We live in a day and age where what was once considered expected behavior for a Christian has now become a subject of debate. For the vast majority of the 2,000 years since Calvary there was never a debate over whether a Christian was expected to live a pure and holy life. It was simply a given and assumed to be such a basic truth there was no need to debate it.

Are You A Wicked Messenger Or A Faithful Ambassador?

For Americans wanting to serve abroad, one of the most coveted positions is that of an ambassador. Frequently the position is awarded based on some type of political favor to the president or his political party. While our sinful nature can cause this area to result in corruption with the appointment of persons who are not qualified there are legitimate reasons to appoint someone who is loyal to the president.

Jesus Wants To Transform You To Be Like Him

“The Revelation of St. John the Divine” (Title to the book of Revelation). We are often used to referring to books of the bible by the name of the book rather than its full title. For example, we will say “I read from the book of John today for my devotion,” rather than saying “I read from ‘The Gospel according to St. John’ today.” However, the titles of the books can provide key principles for living the Christian life as well.
