'Abram believed GOD and it was credited to him as righteousness.'
The just shall live by faith.
I recognise a moral, spiritual and physical deficit in me. I am aware I am naturally predisposed to self. Self comes first. I am a mixture of urges,
desires, instincts and passions based on self fulfilment and self-centeredness. The world is here to make me happy and meet my wants and appetites. I
am out of balance with everything else in creation.
I am at enmity with my Maker. My self seeking puts me as 'god' in this world. It's all about me. The story of life is about me. After all, when I die
the story is over.
For me this is sin. The genetic disposition to put myself on the throne of all I survey and not give GOD His rightful place. To do so, one must come
off of the throne of their heart as king or queen and die to self. Death to self is not enough. One must be 'born again', so that the Spirit of GOD
and life of Christ may enter in and realign everything within me to live in relationship with Him again as Adam & Eve did before they blew it.
It is my job to recognise my natural human state and inability to change my selfish nature, and also to believe or have faith in what GOD has done in
Christ to reconcile me to Him. To trust that He has imparted His own divine nature within me to conform me to His likeness, so that I may walk in a
genuine and personal relationship with the maker of the universe on a daily basis.
