Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

The Christ-life is a contrast between our life prior to committing to Christ and being born above, and now with Christ alive in us, the emergence of a new being.

The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery, idolatry...But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
                                                 --Galatians 5:19f excerpts TNIV

As he says, the acts of the sinful nature are "obvious", and surely so is the contrast between the two lives, before and after.

In Christ, we are empowered to live new lives. The only thing stopping us is honoring Christ's leadership in our lives. So let's be about it today.
