“For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;”
The idea that people are basically good and will usually do the right thing once they know what is right is quite widespread in our day. It’s easy to understand why people want to think that, because it is flattering to us to think of ourselves that way. But the Bible paints a different picture of the state of the lost. “They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one” (Romans 3:12).
Despite the teaching of Scripture that we receive a new nature upon salvation, some people seem to want to stay as close to the old nature as they can rather than walking daily as a new creation of God. Because He is holy, He requires holy living from us. And because of His power we are no longer in bondage to sin, without the ability to do what is right. Charles Spurgeon said, “The liberty of the man of the world is liberty to commit evil without restraint; the liberty of a child of God is to walk in holiness without hindrance.”
We do not work to earn our salvation or merit with God. But we are His children, and He has the right to demand that we live up to the new name He has given us. There is freedom in Christ, but it is freedom from sin, not freedom to sin.
Today’s Growth Principle:
We have the privilege and responsibility to walk in a manner worthy of being a child of God.

“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”-Galatians 2:20
