A healthy spiritual birth results in the falling away of many of the more obvious works of the flesh, often causing the new believer to claim 2 Corinthians 5:17 (17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come The old has gone, the new is here!) or Galatians 2:20 (I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.) as his testimony. However, for the Lord Jesus to be fully manifested, it is going to involve a lifetime of the Holy Spirit’s deep dealing with the more subtle and deadly characteristics of the self-life “always delivered unto death” (2 Cor. 4:11).

 

“How many earnest and religious people belong to ‘the Old Adam Improvement Society.’

 

If you keep believing that you can make yourself better, or earn it, or claim it, you will be constantly disappointed. In fact if you take the day of your salvation as the event horizon, the farther you travel from that point the sad truth is the less you are like that new born, energized new man, and more like the sinful Adam. And that’s the good news, you couldn’t handle the way you are now back then. It’s called grace and the farther you are from that “new day” the more sins you see back in your life. That’s the good news, God is showing you the “leftovers” the things never really dealt with, the “secret kingdoms” in your heart.

 

It’s like the story about the white dog and the black dog, (this is a totally nonsense story and also wrong, incorrect and baloney) the story says the dog you feed the most will always win the fight so feed the white dog. Nonsense, the truth is both dogs are dead, your dead, you died and the only thing in your life that can please God is staying dead and living the resurrected life, you have nothing good to offer, your faith isn’t important unless Christ is the object of your faith. Your good works suck, your dead, move on or in this case up.
