A Warfare of Natures

Category: Radio Broadcasts - Words of Grace
Created on 02 November 2015

In our last broadcast, we considered the fact that human beings indeed have a will to choose their actions, but that will is governed by their nature. The nature we inherited from Adam stands in full enmity against God, requiring men to experience a "new birth" in order to seek after God. This is why Paul proclaimed that "natural man," one with only Adam's nature, finds gospel truth to be foolish. 

Today we consider another aspect of this subject: the fact that after the new birth, men possess both an Adam nature and the nature of Christ and these two natures are described as being at war against one another. This explains the great struggle a believer experiences each day of his life between righteous and wicked behavior. 

Listen as we explore the descriptions of these two natures and also how to strengthen yourself against the lusts of the flesh, to live a life pleasing to God.

Radio broadcast for November 1, 2015.
