The Nature To Do Right by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

The Nature To Do Right by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

And I will put my spirit within you, and
cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye
shall keep my judgments, and do them
(Ezekiel 36:27).

Notice our opening verse again; the Lord
didn’t say, “I will put my spirit within you
and you’ll struggle to please me”; no!
Rather, He said, “…I will put my spirit within you and
cause you to walk in my statutes….”

There’s a force in you, an ability or nature that
compels you to do what’s right and required of God
as a way of life; it’s called righteousness. Being born
again, you’ve been called to express and manifest the
righteousness of God. That’s Christianity. We don’t
struggle to do right. We’re born with the new nature of
God to live right.

Some have never really understood the doctrine
of righteousness as revealed in God’s Word, and that’s
the reason they still struggle with sin. They don’t
understand righteousness as a nature, the divine
element that causes us to act, talk and live right. You
can decide you’re not going to do something that’s
wrong and stand your ground, because sin has no
power over you. This is possible because God already
made you righteous. Living right is the product of
righteousness. The ability to do the right things can only
flow naturally from a righteous spirit.

Some of your actions may still be imperfect, but
that doesn’t in any way negate your nature as the
righteousness of God in Christ. What you need is to
keep growing and increasing in the knowledge of God. Keep learning and acting on God’s Word, and your life
and actions will be in sync with His righteousness.

There’re those who say it’s human nature to do
wrong; “to err is human,” they’d say. That’s the reason
your human nature was replaced with the nature of
righteousness when you were born again. The life inside
you now is not the human life that’s subject to sin; it’s
the God-life, and it’s sin-proof (Romans 6:14). You’re
no longer subject to the limitations and imperfections
of the human nature. You’re now a partaker of the
divine nature, and have put on the new man, which
is renewed in knowledge after the image of God that
created you (Colossians 3:10).

Live in this light—in the consciousness that you
have the nature of God in you to do right, and live
righteously unto God. Hallelujah!

Dear Father, thank you for your righteousness in me,
which produces in me the ability to do right and fulfil
your will always. I produce fruits of righteousness,
do the works of righteousness, and manifest your
goodness to the world, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
