SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 02/10- “Controlled By Love—The Love Of Christ!” (2 Corinthians 5:14-15)
Premise Question: Is it a real possibility, being that it would actually happen, for authentic believers, (true followers of Christ) to overcome their old nature, (their corrupt spiritual DNA they are born with) and thus, no longer live unto and solely for themselves, but be transformed, by taking on a new nature, (the perfect spiritual DNA of Christ) and live a life that successfully emulates the life of Christ?
Either way, Christ’s love controls us. Since we believe that Christ died for all, we also believe that we have all died to our old life. He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them. (2 Corinthians 5:14-15 NLT)
Whether you think we are crazy or not, it matters not, because what really matters, is that we allow the love of Christ to control what we say, what we do, and how we live. In as much as, we are fully persuaded that Christ laid His life down, in death, upon the cross, for all of humankind, we are, furthermore, also fully compelled and persuaded that we all have now lain our old lives down, dying to the sinful nature we were born into this world with. Understand this; Christ chose to die for all of humankind, so that anyone who chooses to be transformed, by receiving and accepting a new nature and life from The LORD Jesus Christ, will no longer live their lives unto and for themselves, but will rather, live their lives in total submission to the will and purpose of Christ, Whom offered up His life upon the cross and then, rose from the grave victorious, for all of humankind. (2 Corinthians 5:14-15 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Yes! It is entirely possible, and should be the norm of what is taking place, in all our lives, and for all to see; that being, the transformation and transition from our old nature, the corrupt spiritual DNA we were born into this world with, to a new nature, the one provided for us through and by the death and resurrection of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ, and the empowering and enabling of His Spirit; which is His perfect divine spiritual DNA. But, in order for this transformation and transition to happen, we, as authentic believers and followers of Christ, must choose to yield ourselves completely, no longer being controlled by our old sinful nature, but now being controlled by the divine nature and love of Christ. In order for this to happen, we must first die to our old spiritually corrupt DNA nature, and then, be transformed, by coming alive to the new spiritually divine nature of Christ. For if we are still operating out of our old corrupt DNA nature, then we are not living out of our new divine nature, and therefore, will not produce what is good, right and holy, but will only produce according to our old nature, which is spiritually corrupt! So, for Christ’s sake, and ultimately your sake, choose to die to self and the old corrupt spiritual DNA, and be transformed, by coming alive, being reborn, with a new spiritual divine nature, the DNA of Christ! Our DNA- Damned Nature Already…Christ’s DNA- Divine Nature Always…Blessings…
