Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there.
Galatians 5:24 NLT
This is a another one of my favorites. I just discovered this verse this year but it has been pivotal in my spiritual growth. What part of your sinful nature have you nailed to the cross? What have you decided deserves less of your time? It’s a hard process to look at your actions and say I’m not going to be that way anymore, especially if you have been that way for years and years. When God tells you its time to grow up, it’s time to grow up and that is essentially what happened to me. Things that used to interest me no longer bring me pleasure. I can tell because I would be engaged in those activities and they didnt feel the same. At some point you have to draw the line in the sand and declare who do you belong too? Do you belong to Christ or do you belong to the world?
