Living like a Child of God

Turn from sin and become a little child.. "I tell you the truth, unless you turn from your sins and become like little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven." This means to trust in the one who created you; your 'our' Father in Heaven. Let all the burden of this world be placed at His feet so that you can be free of it and be like a child in the presence of a father.

How to do this as adults when we are told to take and have responsibility for our own lives? Paul in his letter to the Galatians describes the constant conflict between the flesh, our lower nature prone to sin, and the indwelling Spirit. Paul reminds us that only the Holy Spirit can deal with this conflict when we submit to His control and actively walk in Him. This enables us to die to the flesh, and delivers us from the tyranny of the Law and causes the Fruit of holiness to grow in our lives ~ New Spirit Filled Bible.
