What makes a bird fly south for the winter? What makes a trout swim up stream to lay its eggs? Instincts plays a major role in the world around us. Aminals are born with natural instincts and it controls the way they act. They don’t have to be taught to do things, instead their innate response to the world causes them to act certain ways.
In the same way, Christians are born again. They are no longer seeking after the things of the world, but after the things of the spirit. Inside of every Christian is a nature that is born of the spirit of God. It helps people make the proper decisions, and follow the correct path; it developes in them the characteristics of Christ instead of the lusts of the fleash. The more a Christian walks in Love, the more love will become a second nature. The more a Christian walks in peace, the more peace will become a second nature. The more a Christian walks in any fruit of the Spirit, the more that fruit will become part of his or her nature.
Have you noticed the Fruit of the Spirit becoming second nature in your life?
