📜 FRUITS OF THE RECREATED SPIRIT 📜
///// SUNESIS OF CHRIST /////
Day 273 | September 29, 2020 | Apostle Gideon C Boateng
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law
The child of God is a new creation with new nature. The old life with its weaknesses and challenges are all done away with legally in Christ. In salvation the old man dies and a new man is born. This is what water baptism typifies. Being dipped in the water, illustrates the death of the old man and the raising up from the water is also symbolic of the birth of the new man. Don't believe any stories from any man claiming we are just as ordinary as the people of the world.
Rom 6:4 Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. In the same way, we also have a totally new life. This is what is referred to us the New Creation. If you had any weaknesses in character and attitude before you came into Christ, all those attitudes with the old life have been buried with Christ and you now have a super life, the Christ life.
This new life is full of love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control and all the godly virtues you can think of. This new life we have in Christ doesn’t come short of any good trait, it is an excellent life. If you ave seen any person conduct themselves in a nice way that you admired, be aware that you have it or more in you. The new creation is made after the order of God with the nature of God his Father imbedded in him and everyone who possesses this life is required by heaven to be excellent in their conduct.
Anytime you find yourself living a life short of the excellent life required of the new creation, tell yourself “NO!” and reaffirm your new life. Don’t let any situation or person dictate the way you behave. If it is not congruent with the excellent life of the New Creation as shown as by the Lord Jesus, refuse to accept it. Don’t also accept that certain class of excellent living is the preserve of a ‘few hyper spiritual papas’. You are an equal child of God as anyone so refuse to resign yourself to carnality.
