Unnatural Nature

We are made body, mind and spirit. Part of our nature is "unnatural". It is the spirit part that separates us from all other creation. God breathed into man and he became a unique being for that reason. To understand this part of ourselves requires the acknowledgment that we were created by a spiritual being who had a reason and purpose for doing so. One distinct characteristic of being a spiritual being is that God gives certain promises to those of us who choose to embrace God as our Father. 1 Corinthians 10:13 lets us know that temptation to step out of God's purpose and plans for us and into sin always has an escape!

It is like those serving in military. Our calling (if we choose to accept it) is to live a life pleasing to God, to make disciples and declare God's kingdom on earth. We may be tempted to go off mission, but there is always a way back to the base. When we make Christ our "homebase" there is always a place of safety and rescue. See...we are different from the world as born-again believers, but, just because we have a safety net doesn't mean we should jump off the deep end into sin. The wonderful thing about being born into the spirit is that God gives us the power to live out this unnatural nature every day.

Today's scope: https://ktch.tv/1xgc

Prayer: Father, teach us how to live make living in the spirit a more natural part of our daily lives. Give us spiritual eyes and ears to comprehend this life on another level and to identify how the enemy is trying to distract us. Help us to take the way of escape that You have provided for us in Jesus name we pray, Amen!

Action: Practice living in the spirit. Ask God to make you aware of how He is working. Block out some things in your life that you know are not helping you to hear what the Holy Spirit is speaking. Incorporate new activities (and new relationships) that help you to be more sensitive to God and fully experience freedom in Christ.
