In every human being is the sinful nature which has already been nailed to the cross with Christ Jesus. Over two thousand years , Christ paid the dept for us. We have to live in active knowledge of what Christ has done for us lest we find ourselves going by the sinful nature.
The sinful nature arises when we start living by the desire of the flesh. When we live by the desires of the flesh the devil has the opportunity to tempt us, to make us fall.
To overcome the devil and temptations, we must yield to the spirit of God and live by the prompting of the Spirit of God, obeying what God has instructed us to do and living by the word of God.
Following the desire of the flesh leads to sinful nature.
Galatians 5: 19–21 ( when you follow the desires of your sinful nature, your self will produce these evils results, sexual immorality, impure thought, eagerness for lustful pleasure, idolatry, participation in demonic activities, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outburst of anger, selfish ambition, divisions, the feeling that everyone is wrong except those in your own little group, envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other kinds of sin. Let me tell you again as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the kingdom of God.”
Since we belong to Christ our sinful nature; passions and desire of the flesh has been nailed to the cross of Christ when he was crucified.
Since our sinful nature is already crucified we now bear the mark of Christ in us.
Experience Life Abundance In Christ.
