It Is Natural

It Is Natural

Romans 8:4-5 (KJB) That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

Did you know that each person is born with a natural propensity to walk at a distance from God?  It is true; each person is born into this world, favoring his or her desires and ignoring or laying aside the will and direction given by God.  Yes, indeed, many people keep a distance from God.

Each person makes a choice.  He or she chooses to set their mind upon the truths of God, or they set Him aside to care for their own needs and desires.  Each person must understand that choosing to keep such a gap away from fellowship with God also sets forth their eternal destiny upon the moment of their physical death in this world.

It is true, every person enjoys spiritual fellowship with God, or he celebrates distance away from God, now and forever.  One position points to self and the flesh, and the other honors God and trusts Him with the helm of their life.
