πŸ‘‘ The New Nature In The Believer

It has been well said that if there is anything good in any man it is because it was put there by God. And something good β€” a new, sinless nature β€” has been imparted by God to every believer.

While there is still within us β€œthat which is begotten of the flesh,” there is also β€œthat which is begotten of the Spirit,” and just as the one is totally depraved and β€œcannot please God,” so the other is absolutely perfect and always pleases Him.

Adam was originally created in the image and likeness of God, but he fell into sin and later β€œbegat a son in his own likeness, after his image” (Gen. 5:3). It could not be otherwise. Fallen Adam could generate and beget only fallen, sinful offspring, whom even the Law could not change. But β€œwhat the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God, sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin,” accomplished, β€œthat the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit” (Rom. 8:3,4),

As Adam was made in the likeness of God, but fell, so Christ was made in the likeness of sinful flesh, to redeem us from the fall, that by grace, through the operation of the Spirit, a new creation might be brought into being, a β€œnew man… renewed in knowledge after the image of Him that created him” (Col. 3:10) a β€œnew man, which, after God is created in righteousness and true holiness” (Eph. 4:24). Referring to this β€œnew man,” John says:

β€œWhosoever is born [begotten] of God doth not commit sin, for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born [begotten] of God” (I John 3:9).

β€œWe know that whosoever is born [begotten] of God sinneth not…” (I John 5:18).

Verse for 1/21/2018

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. — Galatians 6:7-8
