A Change of Nature



Put of the old man (Nature)  

 

Ephesians 4:22


Paul before his conversion was not a meek man. He, proudly and brutally, apprehended all Christians and sought to destroy them. He was bigoted, selfish, and vaunted. But when he wrote his warm and affectionate letter to the churches of Galatia, he said, among other things, “The fruit of the Spirit is . . . gentleness, goodness . . . meekness” (Galatians 5:22-23). His meekness was something God-given, not something man-made. It is not our nature to be meek. On the contrary, it is our nature to be proud and haughty. That is why the new birth (to be born again) is so essential to each of us. That is why the Lord Jesus frankly and pointedly said not only to Nicodemus but to every one of us, “You must be born again” (John 3:3). Meekness begins there! You must have a change of nature.
