What defines you as a son or daughter of God? Is it merely a confession of “Jesus is my savior” or is it a life disciplined and dedicated to a growth of something that is alive? What does it mean when we believe on Jesus? Jesus is the Truth, the Way and Life. That is not just a confession. It is an ever increasing GROWTH, exchanging our carnal lifestyle for a spiritual one.
Jesus is no longer a flesh man. He overcame the flesh and now sits at the right hand of the Father, making intercession for you and me that we may also overcome. Carnality is death. A natural human existence is what Adam lived out. He was created by God, but only a living soul.
Jesus, “the last Adam” is a quickening Spirit. 1 Corinthians 15:45, Genesis 2:7. “And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.” Jesus told the woman at the well, you will no longer worship me at this mountain, but in Spirit and in Truth. John 4:23-24 (KJV)23 “But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”
When we enter into a relationship with God, through Jesus, His son, we walk into a new life and a continual growth movement for the rest of our days. This is an a alive movement, constantly changing because it is live, it is a metamorphosis into a new creature. This is exciting, refreshing and joyful as we are being changed.
Old things are passing away and new birth is constantly happening to us and for us. IT IS A LIVING EXCHANGE. It is a work of the Holy Spirit. The old man is dying, which is the natural, carnal existence of what used to be until we were born a second time- not back into your mother’s womb but born of the Spirit! A whole new experience of existence.
IF WE ARE NOT GROWING SPIRITUALLY EVERY DAY, WE ARE SPIRITUALLY INEMPT OR AT A STANDSTILL. Our spirit needs to stay engaged as we hunger and thirst.
This walk is active and full of power while we stay connected. If we allow our spiritual growth to remain dwarfed our flesh or natural man will remain dominate and we will never fully develop our spiritual life God has for us.
“For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. 9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you.”
Life is in us, we must value it and feed the spiritual part of us! This is an exciting and beautiful Way of existence. The path of the righteous grows brighter and brighter.
Prov 4:18 “But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.”
Determine to exchange the flesh for life and live the peaceable and joyous life God has for you! Draw near to Him during this season. Come up higher and enter in the greater experience He has for you.
