The Practicality of Redemption - the New Nature

  • God has made a provision for the believer regarding his sinful nature in the Crucifixion. We died in Christ our Representative and are therefore dead to sin, Romans 6:6. As we learn to practice the truths of the Crucifixion our sinful nature can be "paralyzed" and we can live in freedom.
  • In the Resurrection of the Lord Jesus a provision has been made so the believer may have a new nature — or more Biblically stated — may be reborn spiritually, and become a person characterized by righteousness.
  • Our problem as believers, is not .in the adequacy of divine provision, but in our inadequate understanding of the will of God, our vacillation as to whether we want to be delivered, and our halfhearted practice of the truths we have been given.
