Nature of God

In which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. Ephesians 2:2

Everyone is born with a sin nature. It is easy to sin. There are oodles of opportunities daily to sin. There are not good sins and bad sins as some like to classify them. All sin is sin whether is it hating your brother, lying,being a thief, committing adultery, gossiping, homosexuality, or yes murder to name but a few. When we accept Christ as our savior we are to become a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17).  The nature of God is to live within us as believers.

We do not have to be stuck in our past. God offers forgiveness and grace. You stumble and fall and God picks you right back up again. When we intentionally sin it keeps us from having close fellowship with the Lord. Fornicators, adulterers, homosexuals, thieves, liars, and murderers can all be forgiven, 1 Corinthians 6:11 says "and such were some of you". Jesus comes to heal and set free. It is only mere men who judge others. Jesus simply shows love.

PRAYER: Help me never be guilty of pointing the finger of judgment at someone when my own life is not perfect. I want to be a prayer, not a judger. Show me any areas in my own life that need to be redeemed. In Jesus' name. Amen.
