We reason and we act in accordance to the realm and the dominion to which we belong…
When we live apart from Christ, our hearts are inclined away from the things of God, the ways of God, the Son of God…We sin. We move against God and away from God. We cling to and justify our selfish nature. We strive to be our own God. And in so doing, we look just like the father of rebellion against God, Satan.
When we belong to Christ, our hearts, though not perfect in this life, are inclined towards God, toward His ways, toward His Son. By His grace and through His Spirit, God is slowly but surely conforming us to the image of His Son. The desires and aspirations of our hearts grow less and less about us and more and more about Christ. We sin, but sin increasingly bothers us. Instead of striving to be our own God, we find our fulfillment and life in striving to glorify God and magnify Christ. And in so doing, we begin to look more and more like our Father, God Almighty.
