You have received a new nature

Daily Thought

Your Word for 19 April 2024

Hebrews 4:16
‘So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.’

1 Peter 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be PARTAKERS OF THE DIVINE NATURE having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

Pastor Ed RoebertThe old nature that every one of us has, is corrupt. Unfortunately however it basically dominates the people of this world.  When Jesus comes to live in us He gives us a new nature His nature.
When we receive this new nature certain things happen.  Our value systems change. The things we considered precious, diminish in value, and the things that in time past were of no consequence to us become extremely important. Certain things we used to revel in we now hate. We no longer want to see injustice, nor hear bad language or filthy jokes, or associate too closely with evil people. Instead we long to be with the children of God, we become aware of God’s Word and develop a longing to hear from God.  Whereas previously we would not enter a church, we now enjoy attending church to meet with the living God, because we have received the new nature of Christ.
