Galatians 5:24 ” Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires.”

Our natural life in and of itself is not sinful. And as a Christian, it’s not a question of giving up sin – it’s a question of giving up my right to myself. My natural life wants to maintain autonym and my right to self-will…so in reality this is where the battle is really fought. Sure, we don’t need to debate over what’s evil or wrong, that’s obvious…but when it comes to things that are “good”, we’ll argue with God , wanting our way. But that’s in direction opposition to what the Lord desires…for He wants only the very best for us. And it’s not until we deny our natural self…crucifying our flesh through faith and love in Christ, that “good enough” will make way for God’s best.
